Lagerstroemia indica With Love Eternal ('Milavio') (PBR)(With Love Series)
(shipped in 3-5 working days)
- 2 litre pot
- Next / named day
This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.
- Position: full sun
- Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: July to September
- Hardiness: frost hardy (may need protection in winter)
Slathered in rich pink flowers for several months from midsummer, this new, compact shrub offers an abundance of colour and is ideal for extending the season of interest into autumn. Hardier than most other crepe myrtles, it is ideal for sheltered gardens with freely draining soils.
- Garden care: Plant it in a sunny, sheltered spot (ideally with the protection of a south-facing wall) and if necessary prune in spring. Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in autumn. In colder regions, keep it in a pot and move it to a sheltered spot when the temperatures start to dip.
