Description
Lagerstroemia indica 'Mardi Gras' is a superb weeping shrub for the rockery, border or a large patio container. This dark green leaved, deciduous, densely branched shrub has downward, weeping branch tips. Lagerstroemeria does not particularly like alkaline soil and will perform best in a neutral to acid conditions. They tolerate drought and hot sun very well. Ruby red flowers are formed prolifically in clusters on the stems. Each flower is formed of crinkled, crepe like petals which drop cleanly as the petals age. New buds emerge immediately, flowering over a long period from July to October, or until sharp frosts end the display. Height: 1.2m (4'). Spread: 90cm (36").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant Lagerstroemia in any rich fertile soil in full sun. Although reasonably hardy once established, Crepe Myrtle enjoys a hot sheltered position and is best grown against a south facing wall or as a specimen plant in the conservatory.
More Info
Feed and water Lagerstroemia regularly particularly when grown in containers. Crepe Myrtle plants will appreciate some protection from hard frosts throughout winter. Prune in winter or spring whilst dormant to remove and dead, damaged or misplaced stems and maintain a pleasing shape.
