Description

Lagerstroemia Indica, Common Crape Myrtle – Plant

Lagerstroemia indica, the crape myrtle (also crepe myrtlecrêpe myrtle, or crepe flower) is a species of flowering plant in the genus Lagerstroemia of the family Lythraceae. It is native to the Indian Subcontinent (hence the species epithet indica), and also to Southeast Asia, China, Korea and Japan. The genus name honours Swedish botanist Magnus von Lagerstroemia. It is an often multi-stemmed, deciduous tree with a wide-spreading, flat-topped, rounded, or even spike-shaped open habit. The tree is a popular nesting shrub for songbirds and wrens. The crepe myrtle is a favourite of many southern gardeners. (Crepe myrtle is the preferred common name in the south). The draw for this plant is that it blooms at a time when most trees are not blooming.

Planting & Care

Every leaf has a growth bud, so removing old flower blossoms encourages the plant to make more flowers instead of using the energy to make seeds. Clean away from around the base of the rosebushes any trimmed debris that can harbour disease and insects.

  • Sunlight:

1. More than 6 hours of direct bright sunlight a day.

  • Watering: 

1. Before water poke your finger/plain small stick into the soil to check the moisture.

2. Water when topsoil (1-2 inches) feels dry to touch.

3. Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering in the winter and rainy seasons.

  • Soil:

1. The soil should be well-drained and fertile, rich in organic content for growing plants.

  • Fertilizer:
  1. During the main growing season (June and July) feed the plant with organic fertilizer.
