Crepe Myrtle for the Summer Heat.

2년 전

Crepe Myrtle ( Lagerstroemia) is a small , fast - growing tree for warm, temperate and cool-temperate climate zones. Native to astern Asia, it is regarded as one of the best flowering trees available, and comes in a fantastic range of colours. Masses of flowers with ruffled petals adorn the trees , making an attractive display. The tree also has an attractive trunk with smooth mottled bark. It usually flowers in Mid to late summer and has few pests and diseases, however Powdery Mildew, a fungus affecting the leaves can be a problem in more humid areas. A new variety , called "Indian Summer" has been bred for resistance to the fungus, and also comes in many great colours. Crepe Myrtles do very well in Sydney where the photos were taken.

Myrtle, any of the evergreen shrubs in the genus Myrtus, belonging to the family Myrtaceae. Authorities differ widely over the number of species the genus includes. Most occur in South America; some are found in Australia and New Zealand. True myrtles have a central midrib and a major vein just inside and parallel to the leaf margin.

The aromatic common myrtle (M. communis) is native to the Mediterranean region and the Middle East and is cultivated in southern England and the warmer regions of North America. In Greco-Roman antiquity, the common myrtle was held to be sacred to Venus and was used as an emblem of love in wreaths and other decorations.

The plant may grow more than 5 m (about 16.5 feet) high. The opposite leaves are thick and lustrous, with many small, translucent, oil-bearing glands. The solitary white flowers, about 1.8 cm (about 0.7 inch) long, are borne on short stalks. The fruit is a purplish black, many-seeded berry. Myrtol, a volatile oil found in most parts of the plant, was formerly used as an antiseptic and tonic.

Variegated, yellow-fruited, and white-fruited varieties of the common myrtle are cultivated for ornament. Other plants known as myrtles are wax myrtle, bog myrtle (or sweet gale), crape myrtle, sand myrtle, gum myrtle, downy myrtle, and the mountain laurel of Oregon and California, the wood of which is often sold as “myrtle.” The creeping, or running, myrtle is the periwinkle.

Crepe myrtle trees, in many varieties, overlook an abundance of southern landscapes. Southern gardeners love their crepe myrtles for summer bloom, attractive, peeling bark and limited crepe myrtle care. How to grow crepe myrtle is not an issue in most areas to which they are hardy, USDA Zones 9-7 (with some special varieties surviving in zone 6), as they are easy to grow in the right location.

Crepe myrtle trees should be planted in a sunny location. Soil need not be rich or amended; crepe myrtle trees are adaptable to most soils except those that are soggy. Sunlight and well-draining soil afford a wealth of summer blooms and help keep pests away.

The difficulty most often arises when caring for crepe myrtles. Crepe myrtles trees are sometimes susceptible to sooty mold and powdery mildew, but these are easily cured with an organic spray. The most daunting and incorrectly practiced aspect of crepe myrtle care is pruning” Crepe murder usually occurs when an overly enthusiastic homeowner severely cuts back top branches on crepe myrtle trees, ruining the natural shape and form of the lovely landscape specimen.

The colorful, long-lasting blossoms of crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) make it a showpiece in classic Southern gardens. But it is not a particularly delicate plant and it can thrive in conditions that would be a challenge for other plants.

Crepe myrtle are deciduous or evergreen, flowering trees or shrubs and are among the best flowering trees. Crepe myrtle is also known as the crape myrtle, and its scientific name is Lagerstroemia. There are approximately 50 species of crepe myrtle. The crepe myrtle is native to south east Asia and northern parts of Australia and Oceania. The crepe myrtle is part of the Lythracae family, also known as loosestrife.

Crepe myrtle derives its name from the crepe like look and texture of the flowers. Most crepe myrtles shed their bark during the year. Different species of crepe myrtle can be as little as 30 cm (1 foot) in height and can be as tall as 30 m (100 feet). The colour of crepe myrtle flowers come in almost any shade of purple, pink, red or white. Crepe myrtles are popular due to their long lasting flowers, which bloom in Summer and Autumn. It is not attractive to deer, so it is a good choice in areas where damage from browsing animals is a problem.

Crape myrtle's long bloom period is one of its most attractive characteristics, and given the proper growing conditions, the plant will be covered with flowers from midsummer into fall.

The most daunting and incorrectly practiced aspect of crepe myrtle care is pruning” Crepe murder usually occurs when an overly enthusiastic homeowner severely cuts back top branches on crepe myrtle trees, ruining the natural shape and form of the lovely landscape specimen. Caring for crepe myrtle should include limited pruning and little removal of growing branches. Too much pruning from the top sends suckers shooting from the bottom of the tree or the roots, resulting in additional pruning and unnecessary crepe myrtle care. It can also result in an unattractive winter form.

Crepe myrtle is a fast-growing deciduous tree or shrub that is particularly popular in the South and Southeast regions and hardy in zones 6 through 10. Due to its multi-stemmed appearance, the tree is commonly grown in yards and public areas for an addition of color and interest. Dwarf crepe myrtle is perfect for containers and as an accent shrub in flower beds.

In Southern climates, the crepe myrtle begins to flower mid-spring, and in northern areas, it blooms in the summer. Flowering in all regions continues until the fall. The flowers grow in 6 to 12-inch long clusters that are 3 to 5 inches wide, and clusters from the dwarf varieties are smaller.

Crepe myrtle trees are available in a range of flower colors, including purple, lavender, white, pink, and red. Some types of crepe myrtle have bicolor flowers. The bark on the plant peels off in the summer, exposing a new layer.

The crepe myrtle enters a dormant state starting in the late fall and lasting throughout the winter. During this time, the leaves fall off, but the roots keep growing.

The crepe myrtle is a favorite of many southern gardeners. (Crepe myrtle is the preferred common name in the south). The draw for this plant is that is blooms at a time when most trees are not blooming. If the plant is healthy it will be covered with blooms that will last for months during the hottest part of the summer. This tree is resistant to damage by deer.

Crepe myrtles will grow in almost any kind of soil sand, loam or clay. It is even possible to grow them in containers if they are watered and fertilized properly. They will grow in partial shade, however, the best flowering will occur on plants that receive more than 6 hours of direct sun. They range from having smooth to exfoliating bark. To promote flower bloom it is best to trim off seed pods.

A lot of work has been done with crepe myrtles to produce several different colors of flowers from white to purple to every shade of red. They can be purchased for small spaces with plants that reach a mature height of 3 to 5 feet to large shade trees reaching heights of 35 feet and almost any size in between.

Work has been done in breeding this original crepe myrtle Lagerstroemia indica with a Japanese crepe myrtle Lagerstroemia faurei, which features red, flaky bark and resistance to powdery mildew. Most new varieties that are on the market today are a result of this breading program.

Lagerstroemia: Crape Myrtle

Crape myrtles are one of our favorite plants for summer color. Their flowers, in saturated pink, magenta, purple or white, add an unexpected pop of color at a time of year when most shrubs and trees have finished blooming.
Crape myrtles don’t stop with great flowers though; pretty red-tipped summer leaves turn glorious gold, orange, red and purple in autumn before falling off. Great bark completes the ornamental trifecta. The bark on many Crape myrtles peels in puzzle patterns to reveal smooth cinnamon or tan colors that glow during winter, especially when glistening in Portland rain.

Lagerstroemias are available in different mature sizes; some are shrubs, growing between 5-8 feet. Others are larger, growing into lovely trees up to 20-25 feet. Tree types are now included on Portland’s street tree lists, and are an excellent choice for parking strips that are very hot, provided that they are watered weekly.

Crape myrtles are native to areas where summer rain is frequent, often in the form of thunder storms. Portland summers are typically hot and dry, so supplying weekly deep watering is important for good blooming and strong growth. They also love heat. South-facing, blazing sun all day or reflected heat from sidewalks and walls is their ideal site. Surprisingly Crape myrtles thrive in heavy soil, having thick roots that push through clay. They languish in soil that is soggy during wet months and soil that is nutrient rich and amended.

Plants are available in a wide range of mature sizes, from dwarf forms maturing at 3-4’ to trees growing to 20-25’.


Lagerstroemia 'Coral Magic'
Big clusters of coral pink flowers in August, red new leaves turn dusky dark green – red fall color, grows 6-10’ x 6-10’.


Lagerstroemia 'Arapaho'
Grows 18'-20' tall.


Lagerstroemia 'Natchez'
Grows 20'-25' tall.

Crape myrtle is a very beautiful and popular flower. Lagerstroemia is it's scientific name and commonly known as Crape myrtle. Mainly Lagerstroemia is a shurb or small tree.

Flowers is the beauty of nature. We can learn from flowers like love, peace, beauty, innocence, purity. We should plant flowers everywhere like home, school, college, office and make the world beautiful and peaceful.

Crape myrtles are wildly popular in the South for good reason. They bloom in the summer, when there are few other trees and shrubs providing that service. The larger varieties grow rather quickly, providing a bit of shade in addition to the seasonal color.

1452645521890.jpeg

All crape myrtles are sun lovers, generally cold hardy in zones 7-10, although there are some that will work in zone 6 as well. They are extremely heat-tolerant and quite drought-tolerant once established. Plant them in full sun, amending the soil with soil conditioner to provide a moist and well drained situation.

crepe-myrtle-lagerstroemia-indica-lagerstroemia-indica-crape-myrtle-crepe-myrtle-crepeflower-species-genus-101025639.jpg

Care is minimal for crape myrtles. Fertilize in spring with a general purpose shrub fertilizer—cottonseed meal works great—and keep it mulched to maintain consistent soil moisture and temperature. Water periodically during dry spells.

sioux-crape-myrtle-2.jpg

The major problems with crape myrtle include Japanese beetle, aphids, whitefly and powdery mildew. Again, providing a good location and proper sizing to fit the site will minimize most of these problems, but monitor for them and treat as needed.

Dynamite600.jpg

Crape myrtles, like most other commercially available plants, come in a wide selection of varieties. Not only do they differ in bloom color and cold hardiness, but also in mature size, bloom time and disease/insect resistance.

From the vibrant hues, clusters of blooms, smoothest bark, and dense foliage this flamboyant tree is sure to be the center of attention in any landscape. Known not only for its beauty, but also for its hardiness and loved dearly for its ability to be planted in unthinkable places, like the side of streets, in medians, and even highways.

For the best results, plant your crape myrtle in an area that gets at least 6 to 8 hours of full sun daily (more sun = more blooms). You can also plant your tree in an area with partial sun, but you may not get as many flowers.
When planting your crape myrtle tree, it is important that you pick a spot that gets at least 6 to 8 hours of full sunlight per day and has well-drained soil.

This is vital because if your soil isn't well drained, it can cause root rot; and if you do not plant it in an area that gets full sun, you will have minimal amounts of blooms. Afterward, dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Be careful, if you plant the tree too deep in the soil, the tree will not be able to breathe.

Crape myrtles are hands down the mainstays of the Southern summer landscape. Though the Colonial-era trees and shrubs are sometimes referred to as the “lilac of the South” most folks believe they flat out out-bloom their Northern counterparts, even without the cloying fragrance of true lilacs.

Whether you spell it crape or crepe (keep in mind that the Crape Myrtle Society of America uses the “a” which is what I prefer as well), or play it safe with the universal Latin name Lagerstroemia, the versatile shrubs and trees are sturdy backbone plants that provide both lush summer flowers and striking winter texture; many have intense orange, yellow, or red fall colors as well.
Four-Season Beauties

The plants come in a wide array of sizes and shapes, from statuesque trees 30 or more feet tall, to low-growing mass-groundcovers that stay under three or four feet. Different varieties can be naturally rounded or upright and vase-shaped, and are easily pruned to accentuate either.

Some self-appointed horticultural tastemakers are critical of those who prune crape myrtles, calling it unnatural and distasteful (they call it “crape murder”), though if done properly this stylistic choice actually does not harm the trees.

Crepe myrtle is one of the shade plants that look beautiful when pink flowering. The Latin name is Lagerstroemia Speciosa, or other name is Crape-myrtle Queen, or Pride of India. Crepe myrtle leaves benefits often used by our parents to treat diabetes and hypertension. Crepe myrtle is a species of Lagerstroemia that thrives in the tropical South Asian region.

Lagerstroemia indica is a deciduous shrub or small tree with an upright, vase-shaped crown; it can grow from 3 - 8 metres tall.
The tree is harvested from the wild for local use as a medicine and source of wood. It is used in soil stabilization projects and is a very ornamental plant, valued especially for its floral display and neat habit, being commonly grown in gardens, as a street tree etc from the warm temperate zone to the tropics - there are many named varieties.

Chemical compounds that have been isolate from leaf extract include corosolic acid, lager-stroemin, flosin B, reginine A, tannin, alkaloids, saponins, terpene, glucose. Characteristic of Crepe myrtle tree can seen from its growth, plant height can reach 45 m.

Generally Crepe myrtle grows between 25 to 30 meters and has many branches. Crepe myrtle stems are pale brown or even turn brownish red, floral features of a panicle and purple.

Crepe Myrtle is a deciduous, vase-shaped tree about 6-8m (18-25′) tall. It is often severely pruned and grown as a shrub 3-4m (10-12′) tall. Trusses of white, pink, mauve or purple blooms appear in late summer.

crepe-myrtle-Getty.jpg

The petals are ruffled, with a crepe-like texture. In autumn the mid-green leaves turn yellow, orange or red (depending on the variety) before falling. Unpruned crepe myrtles develop beautifully coloured, smooth, mottled trunks.

Thank you @ctrl-alt-nwo for creating such a wonderful blog for learning and growth.

The South's love affair with crepe myrtles is undeniable. In some areas, you see them on practically every street--and for good reason. Few plants can match their combination of spectacular summer flowers, colorful autumn foliage, and handsome sculptural trunks. If you're thinking of adding one or more crepe myrtles to your landscape this season, the following tips will help you make a good decision.

Seeing a crepe myrtle in its full summer splendor sends some of us running to the garden shop to buy a plant the same color. But don't buy impulsively. Pay attention to the plant's tag. Make sure that it is not only the exact color that you want, but also the right size and look you hope to achieve.

Crepe myrtles range in size from dwarf selections that grow less than 3 feet tall to several that reach upwards of 30 feet. Knowing the mature height of a plant before you buy it and planting the proper size for the site will save you much heartache and backache in the future. If you're in the Upper South, you should also look for selections that are extra cold-hardy.

The crapemyrtle is often referred to as the "lilac of the South." With its striking flowers, handsome bark and attractive foliage, this species is a favorite for landscapes. It can be grown as either a shrub or small tree and is often used in groupings, containers, hedges and screens. You can even find the common crapemyrtle used as small street trees in urban settings.

crepe-myrtle-blossoms-1546584_1920.jpg

The long flowering comes as the trademark individual flowers, with their curious crepe paper textured petals, last for weeks. Also, the tree produces flowers over a long period.
As well as being long flowering, crepe myrtles offer a large range of flower colours. Blooms vary from shades of pink, to red, purple, mauve, lilac and white.

Lagerstroemia indica

Lagerstroemia indica otherwise known as crepe myrtle (or crape myrtle), could be considered something out of the ordinary, and yet it is a magnificent shrub or small tree that has the Award of Garden Merit, and with good reason. At this time of year it is smothered in crinkled, crepey-looking flowers (hence the common name) about 2cm (⅘in) wide individually, held in large groups (panicles). At a distance the effect is a cloud of pink, and close up the ruffled petals are extremely pretty.

But it isn’t only the flowers that make this plant special. It has an open, multi-stemmed habit with beautiful, peeling bark, extending the season of interest and making it even more worthy as a garden plant. Also, its small dark green leaves change to yellow and orange in autumn.

At Wisley we show this plant off in a sheltered location by the old brick arch at the corner of the Laboratory building and the Canal (the arch leads through to the toilets), so it’s easy to find. It thrives with the extra protection the wall gives it over winter. Its great as a single specimen and equally happy in company – we have cultivars in the Mixed Borders (left).

If you have a similar spot then consider Lagerstoemia indica or one of its many cultivars (flowers come in white, pink, crimson or purple), and enjoy this more unusual lovely garden plant.

Crape myrtles (Lagerstroemia) offer the powerful triple allure of brilliant flowers (late in the season), beautiful bark, and vivid fall color. Long grown in western Oregon, they are enjoying a surge of discovery among gardeners. Often thought of as trees and shrubs for hotter climates, a wide range of cultivars have proven their adaptability in our milder summers, and others are waiting to be discovered by gardeners.

The cultivars released through this program express a broad variation in habit, size, flower color, bloom time, and bark coloration. From dwarf shrubs, barely eighteen inches tall, to large and spreading shade trees, they constitute some of the most popular selections now grown in the United States. Aside from a handful of cultivars, however, they remain little known in Oregon gardens.

Another important chapter in crape myrtle breeding is the work of Dr Carl Whitcomb, of Lacebark Inc in Stillwater, Oklahoma. In the last twenty-five years, he has raised seedlings from a single vividly flowered specimen of Lagerstroemia indica, with astonishing results. Through a long and rigorous evaluation process, he has been able to select for cold hardiness and disease resistance, like those from the National Arboretum, as well as drought tolerance. His introductions, however, offer more vivid colors, including true red flowers, extended bloom time, and darkly hued foliage—a completely new look for crape myrtle.

Crape myrtles flower on wood produced in the current year, so any pruning should be done in early spring. It is best to prune as little as possible. Remove congested wood on the interior of the plant to maintain good air circulation, which helps avoid powdery mildew. Gently shape the remaining branches to enhance their natural character.

As trees mature, removing the lower limbs will reveal the striking bark of the trunks. Pruning will encourage new growth but does little to enhance flowering.

With literally hundreds of sizes and colors available, crape (or crepe) myrtles are a terrific, low-maintenance choice for prolific blooms during hot, humid summers. Nowadays, many varieties are hybrids that maximize the colorful blooms of the common crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) and/or the distinctive bark, cold hardiness, and disease-resistance of the Japanese crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia faurei).

Crape myrtles bloom in midsummer, with colors including white, lavender, purple, pink, magenta, and red. After blooming, they develop distinctive seed heads, then the leaves tend to fall toward the end of autumn, leaving the colorful, exfoliating bark for the winter.

Crape Myrtles truly come in every possible size and shape, from knee-high shrubby dwarf plants to towering tree forms, so it is possible to choose a variety that exactly fits your purpose. When choosing crape myrtles for your yard, there are several factors to consider including:

Height
Natural shape (shrub vs. tree)
Flower color
Amount of bark exfoliation
Disease resistance

Originating in Eastern Asia, Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) can be found in areas including parts of China, Korea and Japan. Named by the famous botanist and forefather of botanical nomenclature Carl Linnaeus, Lagerstroemia indica was given to him by the merchant Magnus Von Lagerström in the 1700’s.

This small to medium deciduous tree forms a lovely rounded vase shape. In late summer, the Crepe Myrtle bears trusses of very attractive, bee-attracting crepe-like flowers, originally pink but now also available in variations of pinks, whites and mauves.

In recent times, several ranges of new Crepe Myrtles have been developed. The new varieties are more disease-resistant and can be used in even more applications within the landscape. The Indian Summer range includes trees ranging in size from small to medium with weeping and more upright forms available. It also offers a great variety of flower colours, ranging from white to pinks, to lavender and almost reds.

Hardy in most parts of Australia, Crepe Myrtles prefer a full sun position, in a well drained soil. In severe frost areas they may require a sheltered position. Once established they are also quite drought tolerant.

Long, cool autumns yield the best leaf display; sudden frosts following warm, humid fall weather often freeze leaves while they’re still green, ruining the show.

Japanese Crepe Myrtle
Lagerstroemia-fauriei.jpg

L. fauriei. Native to Japan. Tree to 20–30 ft. tall and wide, with erect habit and outward-arching branches. Light green leaves to 4 in. long and 2 in. wide turn yellow in fall. Especially handsome bark: the smooth gray outer bark flakes away to reveal glossy cinnamon brown bark beneath. Small white flowers are borne in 2- to
4-in.-long clusters in early summer; often blooms again in late summer.

Indica Crepe Myrtle
Lagerstroemia_indica_crape_myrtle_flowers.JPG
L. indica. The premier summer-flowering tree of the South. Tolerates heat, humidity, drought; does well in most soils as long as they are well drained. May be frozen to the ground in severe winters in the Upper South, but will resprout.

Queen’s Crepe Myrtle
queens02.jpg
L. speciosa. Zones TS; 12–9. Tree to 25–30 ft. tall, 15–25 ft. wide. The showiest and most tender of the crepe myrtles, displaying huge clusters of white, pink, lavender, or purple flowers in June and July. Individual blossoms reach 3 in. across. Large leaves (8–12 in. long, 4 in. wide) turn red in fall. Smooth, mottled, exfoliating bark. Rank grower; annual pruning in winter is especially important to control size and form.

Lagerstroemia indica, all the more generally known as the Crepe Myrtle, is blasting into blossom all finished Melbourne. They are a multi-stemmed deciduous tree which develops well in full-sun.

The uncovered trunk is a component in itself, being smooth and having pinkish-dim mottled spots. The mid year/fall

Crepe myrtles have numerous scene applications. Planted together, they make an expansive deciduous fence or screen. A solitary tree can make a particular concentration, and the combine surrounding the front entryway welcomes guests with a warm southern greeting.Be beyond any doubt to choose the correct size for your necessities. Expansive composes require space for development without infringing on structures, electrical cables or ways. The normal size, which will develop from 12 to 15 feet, is perfect for a little patio or garden. The selection of elves looks extraordinary in vast holders, estates of the storm cellar and even incorporated into enduring beds. Likewise, recollect that myrtle-like creams love the sun. The volume of blossom generation is essentially diminished in a light shade, and a full shade can counteract

The crepe myrtle is a favorite of many southern gardeners. (Crepe myrtle is the preferred common name in the south). The draw for this plant is that is blooms at a time when most trees are not blooming. If the plant is healthy it will be covered with blooms that will last for months during the hottest part of the summer. This tree is resistant to damage by deer.

History/Lore:
The common crapemyrtle is a native of China and Korea. It is called the "lilac of the South." The number of cultivars is enormous. Among these, the U.S. National Arboretum introductions are important for their disease resistance, good flowering, and ornamental bark.

Crape-Myrtle-Sarahs-Favorite.jpg

Thanks to his work with crapemyrtle breeding for most of his professional life, Dr. Carl Witcomb -- researcher, author, and professor at the University of Florida and Oklahoma State University for 20 years -- has patented cultivars that are hardy in Zone 6 and even on warmer sites in Zones 4 and 5.

A beautiful plant and the South's love affair with crepe myrtles is undeniable. In some areas, you see them on practically every street--and for good reason. Few plants can match their combination of spectacular summer flowers, colorful autumn foliage, and handsome sculptural trunks. If you're thinking of adding one or more crepe myrtles to your landscape this season, the following tips will help you make a good decision.

Selecting the Right Crepe Myrtle
Seeing a crepe myrtle in its full summer splendor sends some of us running to the garden shop to buy a plant the same color. But don't buy impulsively. Pay attention to the plant's tag. Make sure that it is not only the exact color that you want, but also the right size and look you hope to achieve.

Where to plant Crepe Myrtles
Crepe myrtles have many landscape applications. Planted together, they create a large deciduous fence or screen. A single tree can create a distinctive focus, and the pair framing the front door greets visitors with a warm southern greeting.

Be sure to select the right size for your needs. Large types need space for growth without encroaching on buildings, power lines or paths. The average size, which will grow from 12 to 15 feet, is ideal for a small courtyard or garden. The choice of gnomes looks great in large containers, plantations of the basement and even included in perennial beds. In addition, remember that myrtle-like creams love the sun. The volume of flower production is significantly reduced in a light shade, and a full shade can prevent flowering in general.

How to Plant Crepe Myrtles
Late fall to early spring is the best time to plant. But a lot of folks buy and plant their crepe myrtle in summer because they select it while it is blooming. That works too, but watering well during the summer months is crucial to transitioning it into your garden. No matter when you plant, water your crepe myrtle well before putting it in the ground. This will help it take up water after planting. Mulch to conserve moisture and keep down weeds. Apply a fertilizer such as Schultz Starter Plus Transplanting Solution or Vigoro Starter Fertilizer as recommended on the label.

Troubleshooting Common Crepe Myrtle Problems
As soon as crepe myrtle leaves unfurl, look for aphids. Their sugary excretions causes sooty mold. This covers the leaves, making them look black and unattractive; a bad infestation will eventually turn leaves yellow and may hinder blooming.

Control these pests by spraying with insecticides that target aphids (such as malathion, diazinon, or ultra-fine horticultural oil) in the summer as soon as they appear. Spray both sides of the foliage thoroughly, and be sure to get the tips of new shoots and flowerbuds. Repeat this treatment as necessary.

A white powdery fungus called powdery mildew sometimes attacks the leaves of many older selections of crepe myrtles. Although the disease may keep the trees from blooming when it becomes severe, most trees aren't permanently damaged.

You can prevent this problem by planting a mildew-resistant selection. For susceptible types, spraying the foliage at first sign of disease with Funginex, Immunox, or summer horticultural oil will keep the powdery mildew from spreading; repeat sprays are necessary. Thank you @ctrl-alt-nwo

Lagerstroemia 'Cherry Mocha'

Common Name: Crapemyrtle
You’ll be impressed by the refined habit of ‘Cherry Mocha’ in the landscape. The dense, small habit has woody, burgundy-colored stems that bear semi-glossy burgundy foliage. The glossy deep red new growth at the tips really accentuate the attractive dark color of the foliage. In late summer, you’ll be treated to smaller clusters of cherry red flowers that open from shiny red buds. Green seed pods follow the flowering performance.

Crapemyrtle have long been a popular flowering shrub in the south, and it's time that these beautiful flowering shrubs made a splash in the Northern market! The hybridizing team at Walters Gardens, Inc. has worked hard toward selections that perform well in our West Michigan climate. All of the members of this collection bloom on new wood, so you can expect a great flowering performance year after year. Note to southern growers: all measurements are based on plant performance in Michigan. In warmer zones without winter die back, mature height will be taller.

When Lagerstroemia Is Standing?

  • Ideally, the Lagerstroemia should be planted in the spring, so it should take plenty of time to develop before the winter begins, but this is not necessary in warmer regions.
  • During the planting, plenty of fertilizer, vitamins should be added to the soil to make a good start to the plant, and then the area around the plant should be placed in the wood chip layer to protect the nematode. In warmer regions, during periods of drought, moderate watering, as well as during the first or subsequent year of growth season, does not require much detail.
  • However, in colder regions, the plants must begin to respond to the basin within a single season, starting in the second summer in the garden and reach the size of the flowering, and thus benefit from feeding with liquid fertilizer to accelerate growth every two weeks.

The plant must leave the fertilizer after the summer is over so that the flowers can mature in winter. You can simply stack the leaves on the plant, or you can build a simple wireframe around the plant to hold the leaves together. can be left in the plants till the middle of spring until they are removed very carefully to avoid any new sprouts emerging. They will be extremely pale due to lack of light, but when exposed to the sun they will quickly start to get green or reddish-green.

  • However, there is no reason to be concerned that Lagerstroemia indica may be slow to leaf in the spring, if the plant has not yet begun to respond when the steel supports are lifted.
  • Give at least a month before you give up or give up before you give up because you can come back.
  • In hot areas where the plant does not require special winter protection and is transformed into a large bush or mud, the main care that should be undertaken in the late winter is pruning; this is not necessary for plant health; or a certain dimension.
  • If the pruning is continued in a still period, since Lagerstroemia indica flowers on this year's wood, it can have a strong pruning and still flowers.
  • In most parts of southern Europe, the trim is enlarged as standard, the branches are cut off only a few centimeters from the top each winter. And so the main trunk is encouraged to produce a hill full of powerful young shoots every year in the plant.

    A Long History

    Native to southeastern China, Lagerstroemia indica has been grown there as an ornamental for over 2,000 years—so long that its original natural range may only be speculative. This species of crape myrtle has a long history in this country as well. It was first noted in Charleston, South Carolina gardens in 1750. From there, its cultivation spread up to the milder parts of the East Coast, across the South to the West Coast, and into the hot-summer parts of California.

    The first crape myrtles to reach western Oregon were likely brought from California in the early twentieth century. They thrive and are commonly grown in the hot interior valleys of southwestern Oregon. Though not as widely grown in the Willamette Valley, they thrive and are popular, especially when their boisterous flowers crown the trees in August and September. It is common to find clusters of them in neighborhoods where one gardener has obviously influenced another. Many old, gnarled, and picturesque specimens can be found in the oldest sections of Eugene, Portland, and Salem.

    Most of the crape myrtles I observed are not readily available to gardeners, nor are there many examples of mature specimens that can be easily seen in Oregon. Others are common in the trade and becoming more common in gardens. I found that the lesser-known selections, specifically the National Arboretum introductions, were among the most impressive and successful here. Many Lagerstroemia indica cultivars fill our nurseries but offer poor to only fair performance, typically lacking resistance to powdery mildew in western Oregon gardens. Only a small selection of National Arboretum hybrids are commonly offered (‘Pecos’, ‘Zuni’, ‘Catawba’, and ‘Acoma’), but they all thrive in western Oregon.

    The reason more of these hybrids are not seen is that they are seldom offered by growers who supply retail nurseries. We have begun to offer these excellent selections at Xera Plants, so they should be more readily available to Oregon gardeners; they are already gaining in popularity among garden designers. Aside from beautiful flowers at the end of summer, disease resistance, and fall color, these cultivars offer attractive bark coloration, which sets them apart from all other crape myrtles. A further attribute of crape myrtles, in general, is that their small leaves drop tidily in fall, then decompose and disappear before the gardener has time to reach for a rake.

    A single specimen of Lagerstroemia xfauriei ‘Muskogee’ rises magnificently from the editor’s garden in San Francisco, roughly five miles in from the ocean. ‘Muskogee’ has been a highlight of the garden, in all seasons, for nearly twenty-five years. The lack of heat during the summer months limits the flowering, but the brilliant autumn colors, reaching their peak at Thanksgiving, are worth the space in this small city garden.

    Two healthy specimens of Lagerstroemia xfauriei ‘Natchez’ can be seen in San Francisco’s much foggier Marina District, a stone’s throw from the bay. Based upon the success of these two hybrid selections in Sunset zone 17, it makes sense to give hybrid crape myrtles a try in similar coastal regions long considered problematic for these glorious trees.

    Crape myrtles flower on wood produced in the current year, so any pruning should be done in early spring. It is best to prune as little as possible. Remove congested wood on the interior of the plant to maintain good air circulation, which helps avoid powdery mildew. Gently shape the remaining branches to enhance their natural character. As trees mature, removing the lower limbs will reveal the striking bark of the trunks. Pruning will encourage new growth but does little to enhance flowering.

    Lagerstroemia - we call it "Lilac." I really like this shrub. When it blooms with its divine smell. It is widespread in the forests of China, Korea, India, the Philippine Islands, where it is considered a "divine flower" with mystical properties. The bush form has hard light brown shoots. The tree has a thin, strong trunk. They are covered with bark, which easily flakes to long strips.
    In height, the larstemia grows to 9 meters. The width of the crown can be up to 8 meters. Its form depends on how it will be formed initially. Designers try to give it a neat appearance, cutting and mowing the young pomelets. The Asian beauty blossoms from June to October, forming small flowers at the ends of the young shoots, 2.5 cm in diameter. They gather in brooms, which in length reach 20 cm. Buds forming on short petioles, resemble dense balls and bloom gradually, beginning with the bottom, the wide part. Thank you for the post.

    I will share frequently asked questions and answers about Lagerstroemia.


    pic source

    "What is this gorgeous tree?"

    Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia) is a Far East-Chinese origin ornament, reminiscent of a sculpture with a magnificent boulder that blooms in pink, white, purple and tones in July, with long-flowered leaves, leaves turning red-orange in the autumn, the plant.


    pic source

    "How hard is it?"

    The Lagerstroemia, which loves the conditions of temperate climate, is also tolerant to the harsh winter conditions. Excessive irrigation in the autumn avoids deeper pruning and fertilization, resulting in the formation of weak and unstable new shoots, thus preventing these weak shoots from freezing under cold winter conditions. If you live in a region where it is very hard in winter, you can protect it with the method of mulching after covering your leaves with the leaves (covered with leaves, straw, dryot etc.).


    pic source

    "The tree is not blooming. Where am I doing wrong? "

    Lagerstroemia wants to see the sun all day on the tree. Even taking sunshine for an hour in the day can put you at risk of getting flowered. If your tree is a little sunny place, you can move it to the most sunny spot of your garden. You have to wait for January to do this and carry out the transportation without disturbing the roots, without distributing the land around the root.


    pic source

    "When and how should I plant my tree?"

    Pruning of the tree is very delicate. Apart from the removal of the thin shoots in the interior to remove the air that dries up last winter, you can achieve a more majestic and fuller appearance by forging a balanced and light pruning from the ends of the shoots at the beginning of each year, in addition to reducing the fine shoots in the interior to increase air circulation. In cold climates, do not prune in the autumn or winter months. In this regard, you can get help from an expert gardener, but be careful not to be in your tree when I say I will prune.

    "Lagerstroemia has white-gray powder layers on the leaves and gonads of my tree. What should I do?"

    Shrinkage is a kind of fungal disease that occurs especially in damp, airy, shadow areas. You can benefit from the Fungicide medicines sold on the market in the fight against this disease, you can come from the top of the disease by applying medication every 15 days. If the problem is too advanced, you should destroy the diseased leaves and goncaller.

    Crepe Myrtle

    At the beginning of the flowering trees I like the most is the tree. This tree, which adds happiness to what it is, loves the sun very much. For this reason, we must plant this tree in the most sunny spot of our garden. Well-drained, moist soil likes but tolerates drought.Crepe Myrtle should be regularly watered, but we must avoid excessive watering. Molding in a humid environment is a problem. We can get past this disease using fungicide.

    It is very elegant with white, pink or lilac flowers opening mid-summer. Flowering takes 60-120 days. The spreading area of ​​the wood can be between 4.5 and 7.5 meters.

    Crepe Myrtle are curious to give side trunks and branches. However, if desired, it can be pruned to grow on a single body. Excessive pruning can damage the natural image of the tree, so be careful. Pruning must be done at the end of winter or early spring, before the growth. The pruning of dead flower heads gives the opportunity to bloom again in the same season.

    Whether you’re looking for a large specimen to shade your garden, mid-sized trees to frame your entranceway, or petite, dwarf shrubs to add a splash of color in your perennial bed, there’s a variety to meet your needs in a rainbow of bloom options. With so many varieties and unlimited uses in the garden, the crape myrtle is the belle of the south of the US.


    Large:

    • ‘Dynamite’: Red blooms grace the large 20- to 30-foot tree.

    1D76800D-4C21-4F21-A21A-3F9A039B4119.jpeg

    • ‘Natchez’: Elegant white blooms add brightness to the landscape, while the cinnamon-colored bark extends seasonal interest. This variety is highly resistant to powdery mildew, the bane of crape myrtle owners. Matures to 15-20’ height

    C7F8D743-4523-4684-8A6F-2260315BE34D.jpeg


    Mid-Sized

    • ‘Catawba’: With stunning purple blooms and a compact habit, this is the perfect specimen for entryways, driveways, sidewalks, or anywhere a burst of color is needed. Mature height reaches 10-15 feet.

    8606C360-F7A5-4B7C-ADBF-6517668C885B.jpeg

    • ‘Pink Velour’: Spectacular hot-pink flowers contrasting with purple foliage make this variety a must-have focal point for small spaces. Highly florific and disease resistant, ‘Pink Velour’ actually performs better without pruning. Reaching a mature height of 8-10 feet.

    The draw for this plant is that is blooms at a time when most trees are not blooming. If the plant is healthy it will be covered with blooms that will last for months during the hottest part of the summer. This tree is resistant to damage by deer.sioux-crape-myrtle-1.jpg
    Crepe myrtles will grow in almost any kind of soil sand, loam or clay. It is even possible to grow them in containers if they are watered and fertilized properly.BW62025-Lagerstroemia-indica-CREPE-MYRTLE.jpg
    A lot of work has been done with crepe myrtles to produce several different colors of flowers from white to purple to every shade of red. They can be purchased for small spaces with plants that reach a mature height of 3 to 5 feet to large shade trees reaching heights of 35 feet and almost any size in between.Picture-Crape-Myrtle-Dynamite-2.jpg
    Work has been done in breeding this original crepe myrtle Lagerstroemia indica with a Japanese crepe myrtle Lagerstroemia faurei, which features red, flaky bark and resistance to powdery mildew. Most new varieties that are on the market today are a result of this breading program. index.jpg

    The vaunted crepe myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) arrived in England from its native China in 1759. It impressed very few people, though, because it refused to bloom. England just wasn’t hot enough. However, the American South was. So when plant explorer and botanist to King Louis XVI André Michaux introduced this tree into Charleston around 1786, it celebrated like an innocent prisoner released from jail.

    Audacious spikes of pink, purple, white, and red flowers crown its sculptural branches for months in summer. In fall, leaves turn a brilliant red or orange, and its peeling bark brings winter interest. Crepe myrtles are found in many shapes, sizes, and varieties, but their arching branches make them a mainstay for framing many a courtyard. The tree loves heat and humidity, tolerates drought, and grows quickly. Unlike the azalea, camellia, and gardenia, which pine for acid soil, crepe myrtle flourishes just about everywhere. No wonder it ranks as the South’s most popular (and coveted) ornamental tree.

    Beloved in the South, crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) is a wonderful perennial deciduous shrub or small tree that provides landscape interest year around, requires minimal attention, and doesn't usually suffer from insects or disease. The long-blooming beautiful flowers appear in midsummer and last throughout the fall giving way to a colorful autumn show. As the leaves drop, depending on the variety, the plant displays its interesting exfoliating bark.received_2043475445890888.pngreceived_2043475815890851.png

    The crape myrtle has been planted in Dixie around homes and along roadways for decades. However, as new varieties have been developed, its range has grown as gardeners have incorporated it into landscapes in more northern climates.received_2043475859224180.png

    Like many of our best loved plants, the crape myrtle is also a native of Asia. Small plants and cuttings found their way to England and then to the United States during the latter 18th and early 19th centuries.received_2043476075890825.png

    Crepe Myrtle tree is really one of the most spectecular flowering trees in the world! Feels so relaxing to seeing those beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing valuable info. 🙂

    The best thing about Indian lilac is of course its breathtaking summer bloom. Imagine in your garden a gigantic bouquet covered with generous bunches of flowers in shimmering colors and will renew itself for long weeks! In some varieties, the flowers are so abundant that they make foliage disappear. The most common color is probably the rose in subtle nuances, but you will also find lagerstroemias red, mauve, purple, and even white. At the end of the day, you will see the color become darker. At the heart of the flower, a small bouquet of stamens golden yellow adds a touch of light.

    Crepe myrtle trees are lovely, delicate trees offering bright, spectacular flowers in the summer and beautiful fall color when the weather begins to chill. But are crepe myrtle roots invasive enough to cause problems? You don’t have to worry about this issue because crepe myrtle tree roots are not invasive....

    Are Crepe Myrtle Roots Invasive!!

    The crepe myrtle is a small tree, rarely growing taller than 30 feet. Beloved by gardeners for its luxurious summer blossoms in shades of pink and white, the tree also offers exfoliating bark and an autumn foliage display. If you are thinking about planting one in the garden, don’t worry about the invasiveness of crepe myrtles and their roots. The crepe myrtle root system will not harm your foundation. The crepe myrtle root system can extend a considerable distance but the roots are not aggressive. The roots are relatively weak and will not insert themselves into nearby foundations, sidewalks or endanger nearly plants. Crepe myrtle roots do not sink taproots deep into the ground or send lateral roots out to crack anything in their path. In fact, the entire crepe myrtle root system is shallow and fibrous, spreading out horizontally up to three times as far as the canopy is wide. .

    FB_IMG_1525092906845.jpg

    On the other hand, it is wise to keep all trees at least 5 to 10 feet away from walkways and foundations. The crepe myrtle is no exception. In addition, the root system grows so close to the surface of the soil that you shouldn’t plant flowers in the area below the tree. Even grass might compete with the shallow crepe myrtle roots for water.... Some experts list crepe myrtles as potentially invasive plants, but the invasiveness of crepe myrtle has nothing to do with the crepe myrtle tree roots. Rather, the tree reproduces so readily from its seeds that, once the seeds escape cultivation, the resulting trees can crowd out native plants in the wild.

    Since most of the popular crepe myrtle cultivars are hybrid and do not produce seeds, reproduction by seeds in the wild is not a problem. This means that you do not risk introducing an invasive species by planting a crepe myrtle in the backyard. .

    You are wrong. It is not good to comment on other people without thinking about it.

    A very beautiful flower tree @ ctrl-alt-nwo, I have never seen that flower from before. Could it be, in the country I live not going to grow Crepe Myrtle flowers. Because I have never seen Crepe Myrtle flowers before. Or maybe I just have not seen the flower, according to my view, the flower has a very expensive price. But I really like the flowers, I have some flowers that I plant in my house. But the flowers that I plant this, all the usual flowers and low prices, and to treat it not difficult, just need us flush it in the afternoon and morning.

    In my opinion, the flowers have many benefits for us, because the flowers are able to make our home atmosphere becomes beautiful and much more. It's one of the flowers I plant in my house. And that became the most interest I liked, of all the flowers I have. Thanks for sharing, and hope you have a wonderful day... :)

    Crepe myrtles are colorful and long-lasting flowers which occur in summer. These are some amazing photographs.

    Crape Myrtles in Western Oregon

    rape myrtles (Lagerstroemia) offer the powerful triple allure of brilliant flowers (late in the season), beautiful bark, and vivid fall color. Long grown in western Oregon, they are enjoying a surge of discovery among gardeners. Often thought of as trees and shrubs for hotter climates, a wide range of cultivars have proven their adaptability in our milder summers, and others are waiting to be discovered by gardeners.

    In 1974, Ted Van Veen, owner of Van Veen Rhododendron Nursery in southeastern Portland, learned of the crape myrtle breeding program at the United States National Arboretum in Washington, DC. Intrigued by the prospect of new hybrids with superior cold hardiness and greater disease resistance than the Lagerstroemia indica selections then available, Van Veen hoped to test them in Portland, at what he then perceived was their limit of cold hardiness.

    In the following year, he received five new crape myrtles, unnamed and identified only by cultivar numbers, from the National Arboretum. He planted three at the front of his nursery and donated the other two to the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden nearby. The three trees at the nursery are still thriving and have grown into magnificent specimens, a testament to their adaptability and long-term performance in our climate.

    Two of those numbered cultivars were later named (‘Muskogee’ and ‘Natchez’) and released by the National Arboretum—the first crape myrtle hybrids from their breeding program. Since that time, they have become two of the most popular and widely planted crape myrtles in the United States, and are now planted around the world. The third tree is the pure species Lagerstroemia fauriei.

    The crepe myrtles are among the most satisfactory of plants for the South: showy summer flowers, attractive bark, and (in many cases) brilliant fall color make them year-round garden performers. Long, cool autumns yield the best leaf display; sudden frosts following warm, humid fall weather often freeze leaves while they’re still green, ruining the show.

    Most crepe myrtles in gardens are selections of L. indica or hybrids of that species with L. fauriei. The latter species has attracted much notice for its hardiness and exceptionally showy bark. Queen’s crepe myrtle, L. speciosa, grows only in the Tropical South.

    I like the lagerstroemia Lavender Dwarf above all because of the theme of being a dwarf lol, it can be easily used for a Bonsai. The only thing is that I live in South America and the fungus would be a very serious problem.

    But it is a very beautiful tree in the floral period.

    This little friend reminded me of a tree here in Venezuela called Apamate (Tabebuia rosea) I remember that by the middle of March they tend to bloom.

    In addition to its beauty when it flowers, the leaves are often used as an antipyretic and the bark is used for diabetes, malaria and other things.

    Lagerstroemia indica

    Lagerstroemia indica (crape myrtle, crepe myrtle, crepeflower[1]) is a species in the genus Lagerstroemia in the family Lythraceae.

    From China, Korea, Japan and Indian Subcontinent Lagerstroemia indica is an often multi-stemmed, deciduous tree with a wide spreading, flat topped, rounded, or even spike shaped open habit. Planted in full sun or under canopy, the tree is a popular nesting shrub for songbirds and wrens.

    Crepe myrtle (দেশি ফুরুস), Kolkata, West Bengal, India

    Autumn foliage

    Crape myrtle blooming near the United States Capitol
    The bark is a prominent feature being smooth, pinkish-gray and mottled, shedding each year. Leaves also shed each winter, after spectacular color display, and bare branches re-leaf early in the spring; leaves are small, smooth-edged, circular or oval-shaped, and dark green changing to yellow and orange and red in autumn.

    Flowers, on different trees, are white, pink, mauve, purple or carmine with crimped petals, in panicles up to 9 centimetres (3 1⁄2 in).

    Lagerstroemia indica is frost tolerant, prefers full sun and will grow to 6 metres (20 ft) with a spread of 6 metres (20 ft). The plant is not picky about soil type but does require good drainage to thrive. Once established it is also quite drought hardy, though it benefits from the occasional deep watering during the summer months.[2]

    15 hybrid cultivars have been developed between L. indica and L. faueri by the US National Arboretum for increased cold-hardiness and resistance to disease, all given the names of Native American tribes.[3] There are also dwarf cultivars of indica x faueri cross-breeds and regular L. indica species, which grow between 2 and 5 feet (1.5 meters).[4]

    Cultivation
    In the United States, Lagerstroemia indica is a very popular flowering shrub/small tree in mild-winter states (USDA Zones 7-10). Low maintenance needs make it a common municipal planting in parks, along sidewalks, highway medians and in parking lots. Like the Southern Magnolia, the Crape Myrtle has come to symbolize the American South because of its extensive planting and ability to thrive in hot, humid summer climates with regular precipitation.[5] It is one of only a few trees/shrubs to offer brilliant color in late summer through autumn, at a time when many flowering plants have exhausted their blooms. Lagerstroemia is a common planting in South Atlantic States and is becoming an increasingly common shrub in Mid-Atlantic states all the way up through the coastal areas of Massachusetts.[6] Lagerstroemia also thrives in the Mediterranean and Desert climates of Southern California, Arizona and Nevada.[7] In arid climates, it requires supplemental watering and some shade in the very hottest areas.

    During the winter, gardeners will often lop off the branches of large specimens, to manage size and encourage more profuse summer bloom. This is colloquially known as "Crape Murder" because of the drastic pruning involved, leaving a bare trunk during the winter and early spring.[8] The plant must have hot summers in order to flower successfully, otherwise it will show weak bloom and is more vulnerable to fungal diseases.[9]

    The crepe myrtle is a favorite of many southern gardeners. (Crepe myrtle is the preferred common name in the south). The draw for this plant is that is blooms at a time when most trees are not blooming. If the plant is healthy it will be covered with blooms that will last for months during the hottest part of the summer. This tree is resistant to damage by deer.

    Crepe myrtles will grow in almost any kind of soil sand, loam or clay. It is even possible to grow them in containers if they are watered and fertilized properly. They will grow in partial shade, however, the best flowering will occur on plants that receive more than 6 hours of direct sun. They range from having smooth to exfoliating bark. To promote flower bloom it is best to trim off seed pods.

    A lot of work has been done with crepe myrtles to produce several different colors of flowers from white to purple to every shade of red. They can be purchased for small spaces with plants that reach a mature height of 3 to 5 feet to large shade trees reaching heights of 35 feet and almost any size in between.

    Work has been done in breeding this original crepe myrtle Lagerstroemia indica with a Japanese crepe myrtle Lagerstroemia faurei, which features red, flaky bark and resistance to powdery mildew. Most new varieties that are on the market today are a result of this breading program.

    Lagerstroemia

    Lagerstroemia /ˌleɪɡərˈstriːmiə/,[1] commonly known as crape myrtle or crepe myrtle, is a genus of around 50 species of deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs native to the Indian subcontinent, southeast Asia, northern Australia, and parts of Oceania, cultivated in warmer climates around the world. It is a member of the family Lythraceae, which are also known as the loosestrife family. The genus is named after the Swedish merchant Magnus von Lagerström, a director of the Swedish East India Company who supplied Carl Linnaeus with plants he collected. These flowering trees are beautifully colored and are often planted both privately and commercially as ornamentals.

    Description

    Crepe myrtles are chiefly known for their colorful and long-lasting flowers which occur in summer. Most species of Lagerstroemia have sinewy, fluted stems and branches with a mottled appearance that arises from having bark that sheds throughout the year. The leaves are opposite and simple, with entire margins, and vary from 5–20 cm (2–8 in). While all species are woody in nature, they can range in height from over 30 m (100 ft) to under 30 cm (1 ft); most, however, are small to medium multiple-trunked trees and shrubs. The leaves of temperate species provide autumn color.

    Flowers are borne in summer and autumn in panicles of crinkled flowers with a crepe-like texture. Colors vary from deep purple to red to white, with almost every shade in between. Although no blue-flowered varieties exist, the flowers trend toward the blue end of the spectrum with no orange or yellow except in stamens and pistils. The fruit is a capsule, green and succulent at first, then ripening to dark brown or black dryness. It splits along six or seven lines, producing teeth much like those of the calyx, and releases numerous, small, winged seeds.

    In their respective climates, both subtropical and tropical species are common in domestic and commercial landscapes. The timber of some species has been used to manufacture bridges, furniture, and railway sleepers,[2] but in Vietnam's Cat Tien National Park, the dominant stands of Lagerstroemia calyculata in secondary forest are thought to have survived (after episodes of logging) due to the low quality of wood.[3] Lagerstroemia species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera (moth and butterfly) species including Endoclita malabaricus.

    The leaves of L. parviflora are fed on by the Antheraea paphia moth which produces the tassar silk, a form of wild silk of commercial importance in India.

    The crepe myrtles are among the most satisfactory of plants for the South: showy summer flowers, attractive bark, and (in many cases) brilliant fall color make them year-round garden performers. Long, cool autumns yield the best leaf display; sudden frosts following warm, humid fall weather often freeze leaves while they’re still green, ruining the show.

    Wow what a colourful flower!! Really its an amazing flower,
    The myrtle flower is used primarily as an ornamental flower, but is also used in perfumes and cosmetics as fragrance. The leaves have been used as an herbal treatment for whooping cough, TB, bronchitis, bladder conditions and diarrhea, but Web MD warns that consuming myrtle oil can cause asthma-like symptoms, lung and breathing problems, vomiting, low blood pressure and blood circulation problems. There is not enough evidence to support the use of myrtle as a remedy for any condition, says Web MD.

    Crepe myrtle trees, in many varieties, overlook an abundance of southern landscapes. Southern gardeners love their crepe myrtles for summer bloom, attractive, peeling bark and limited crepe myrtle care. How to grow crepe myrtle is not an issue in most areas to which they are hardy, USDA Zones 9-7 (with some special varieties surviving in zone 6), as they are easy to grow in the right location. Information on Planting Crepe Myrtle Planting crepe myrtle is similar to planting other shrubs and trees.
    amaziing.photography.jpg

    Crepe myrtle trees should be planted in a sunny location.

    Soil need not be rich or amended; crepe myrtle trees are adaptable to most soils except those that are soggy. Sunlight and well-draining soil afford a wealth of summer blooms and help keep pests away!
    madisonparkflowers.jpg
    . Newly planted crepe myrtles should be well-watered until roots are established and are then mostly drought tolerant.
    jag.paterson.jpg

    Fertilizer is usually not necessary, unless blooms appear limited. Full bloom may not occur until the second year after planting. A soil test can indicate the need for fertilization.
    elizabethstravels.jpg

    Crepe myrtle prefers a soil pH of 5.0 to 6.5. When planting crepe myrtle in limited space, choose a smaller cultivar so that you won’t be tempted to over prune.farmgirlpaints.jpg
    Crepe myrtle trees are available in dwarf varieties, such as the bright purple blooming Centennial and the deep red Victor. Or choose the semi-dwarf Caddo that blooms in bright pink. Smaller varieties grow well in containers and some hybrids grow in colder zones. Tips on Crepe Myrtle Care The difficulty most often arises when caring for crepe myrtles. Crepe myrtles trees are sometimes susceptible to sooty mold and powdery mildew, but these are easily cured with an organic spray. The most daunting and incorrectly practiced aspect of crepe myrtle care is pruning” Crepe murder usually occurs when an overly enthusiastic homeowner severely cuts back top branches on crepe myrtle trees, ruining the natural shape and form of the lovely landscape specimen.
    shiv_bhowmik.jpg

    Caring for crepe myrtle should include limited pruning and little removal of growing branches. Too much pruning from the top sends suckers shooting from the bottom of the tree or the roots, resulting in additional pruning and unnecessary crepe myrtle care. It can also result in an unattractive winter form. As mentioned above, crepe myrtles are sometimes attacked by powdery mildew that can limit blooms.
    madisonparkflowers.jpg

    Insects, such as aphids, may feed on succulent new growth and create a substance called honeydew that attracts sooty black mold spores. Crepe myrtle care to get rid of these problems can include a thorough overall spray of insecticidal soap or Neem oil. Remember to spray the underside of the leaves.

    I dont agree with you. I have really only 1 account which i am using. The other account is my brother's acc which he himself using. So kindly do a correction.Thanks.

    Crape myrtles bloom on new growth, so prune them in early spring before they break dormancy. Although some gardeners prune their crape myrtles in the fall, I do not recommend doing this. Fall pruning not only creates an unattractive look for winter but also removes the current year’s growth as a buffer against any potential winter damage. Good pruning while crape myrtles are young will mean less maintenance when the trees are older.

    Dwarf myrtle-purple.jpg

    pink-velour-crape-myrtle-new.jpg

    For most crape myrtles, choose three, five, or—at most—seven main trunks. An odd number of trunks is more pleasing to the eye than an even number, which often looks like soldiers in formation. Keep trunks that have ample space to grow and are growing straight and strong. Prune suckers and any additional trunks as close to the soil line as possible. This will avoid leaving a dead stub, which is unsightly and a potential entry for insects and diseases.

    A beautiful plant and the South's love affair with crepe myrtles is undeniable. In some areas, you see them on practically every street--and for good reason. Few plants can match their combination of spectacular summer flowers, colorful autumn foliage, and handsome sculptural trunks. If you're thinking of adding one or more crepe myrtles to your landscape this season, the following tips will help you make a good decision.🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂l.jpg
    Troubleshooting Common Crepe Myrtle Problems
    As soon as crepe myrtle leaves unfurl, look for aphids. Their sugary excretions causes sooty mold. This covers the leaves, making them look black and unattractive; a bad infestation will eventually turn leaves yellow and may hinder blooming.

    Control these pests by spraying with insecticides that target aphids (such as malathion, diazinon, or ultra-fine horticultural oil) in the summer as soon as they appear. Spray both sides of the foliage thoroughly, and be sure to get the tips of new shoots and flowerbuds. Repeat this treatment as necessary.

    A white powdery fungus called powdery mildew sometimes attacks the leaves of many older selections of crepe myrtles. Although the disease may keep the trees from blooming when it becomes severe, most trees aren't permanently damaged.lllll.jpg

    Its homeland is South China and South Asia. In fact, Lagerstroemia is a tree, an ornamental tree. Despite its Latin name, Lagerstroemia indica is located in a natural range that includes parts of China, Korea, and Japan, especially East Asia.

    source

    It can not bloom in shaded areas.
    It is from the beginning of July to the flower.
    It is widespread in much of Southern Europe and in the south of America; here, the different flowers in colors ranging from dark red to bogey dominate the general plans and private gardens in most of the summer months. In addition to the flamboyant flowers, the plants are very popular with their unusual shells in various shades of brown and silvery gray.


    source

    This feature allows plants of Lagerstroemia indica to grow into a fairly thick bush or even a fairly thick bodied tree and branches into medium-sized trees in plants grown in areas where there are no hard or long-term frosts. However, the plant can be grown as a molded bush in very cold regions. In this case, although many bodies with the characteristic shell appear to be unlikely, magnificent flowers make this plant worthwhile. The flowers are lined up on young shoots in clusters. With its smooth, shiny brownish-pink color, it looks even in the flowerless seasons. That's why the four seasons decorate the garden. This bush has a summer mood dependency because it needs heat to mature. For this reason, if the plant receives more summer temperatures, it gets more colder during the cooler months than it can usually tolerate.

    wow awesome crepe myrtles..... they look so beautiful and stunning they have so many colours and from dwarf weeping bush size and bigger.... they look lovely when they lose their leaves... thanks for sharing sir27368392_1845528972148045_3101019388908526448_o.jpg

    Oh yeah @ctrl-alt-nwo, Crape Myrtles (Lagerstroemia indica), often referred to as the “lilacs of the South”, are among the favorites of the South due to their showy flowers, colorful autumn foliage, and, in many cases, their attractive bark.

    Choose the best place in the landscape for your new crape myrtle. Consider the ultimate size of the tree and note if there might eventually be problems with overhead wires, poles, structures or other desirable trees or shrubs. Perfect Plants’ Black Diamond Series of crape myrtles get only 10-12 feet tall and spread just 8 feet across, but some of the older cultivars (such as ‘Natchez’, ‘Red Rocket’ and ‘Tuscarora’) get considerably larger. Crape myrtles do best in full sun – the sunnier the spot, the better, but they should get at least 6 hours of sun each day. Crape myrtles bloom poorly in partial sun and may not bloom at all in a mostly shady location. Crape myrtles like a soil that is relatively moist but still well drained. Once established, however, they do well in dry, sandy soils. Crape myrtles do not tolerate soils that stay waterlogged for extended periods.

    When planting your new tree, thoroughly water the soil in the plant’s pot before starting. Dig a hole larger than the pot, twice as wide if possible. Place the pot on its side and slide the plant out. If the plant is stuck, you can slip a long-bladed knife around the inside edge to loosen it. Gently loosen some of the roots along the sides and bottom, and pull them outward so they are not encircling the root mass. It shouldn’t be necessary to prune any of the roots.The exception is large root(s) wound around the circumference of the pot. In this case the offending root should be shortened so that when it is in the ground it will grow outward and not continue growing in a circle.

    Once established (after a year of growth), crape myrtles can tolerate dry spells and should not need any supplemental watering in climates that average at least 20 inches of rain per year (which is all of the eastern US and much of the West). Crape myrtles benefit from an annual application of fertilizer, such as Nutricote Total Controlled Release Type 360 Fertilizer 18-6-8. Follow label directions and don’t over-fertilize, as this can result in excessive leaf growth, production of unsightly suckers and fewer flowers.

    Pruning: Some varieties of crape myrtle tend to produce suckers, slender fast growing shoots, at the base of the tree. If your desire is for a standard tree shape, the suckers should be pruned off as they appear. Otherwise, the crape may take on the shape of a bushy shrub. Crape myrtles bloom on their new growth each year, so any pruning of the main tree (as opposed to removing basal suckers) should be done during late winter when the tree is not growing. If you cut off new growth in spring, you cut off developing flowers. If you prune in autumn, the tree could begin new vigorous growth that will then be susceptible to freezing which could kill the tree. When it comes to pruning crape myrtles, there are two distinctly different schools of thought:

    Some like to cut them back all the way to a few of the largest limbs, leaving just a stubby skeleton. When growth resumes, these trees sprout numerous shoots from each stub and develop a rounded, lollipop-like shape that is covered in flowers. Crapes pruned this way are good for borders and hedges where uniform a height is desired. However, this “crape murder”, as some call it, results in thin, arching stems and destroys the architectural beauty that characterizes a free-growing crape myrtle.
    Most gardeners prefer to allow their crapes to grow into a more natural form, and very little pruning is ever needed. Limbs that cross and branches that are too long or too crowded can be pruned out to maintain a desirable shape. Cut the unwanted branch back to a branch that has at least 1/3, but preferably 1/2 or more, the diameter of the one you are cutting. This is called a thinning cut. If you merely lop off a branch anywhere (a heading cut), the plant will respond with numerous weak and unsightly shoots just below the cut. Pruning all the way back to a branch at least 1/3 the diameter allows the remaining branch to grow normally.

    A magnificent shrub.
    One of the most beautiful ornamental bushes - the lagrestreemia - owes its name to the names of the Swedish merchant Magnus von Lagerstrem, a friend of the famous scientist Karl Linnaeus. Traveling in Southeast Asia in 1747, he drew attention to plants with magnificent inflorescences. Taking with him a few dozen seedlings, on the way home he gave them to influential people whom he met in the Mediterranean port cities. Later the plant was brought to the British Isles and the North American continent. The peak of popularity and the real recognition of ornamental camprethmia occurred in 1924 and 2002, when she became the winner of garden exhibiti.Thank you for message .

    Gardening is one of the most interesting hobbies. One’s spare time can be spent and enjoyed by gardening. It may be done in a small or big garden, and also on the terrace of a house in a small way. Flowers and fruits are generally grown in a garden But If sufficient space is available, vegetables may also be grown.
    Best-Nature-Hd-In-With-Valley-Of-Flowers-National-Desktop-Place-Images-Pc-High-Quality.jpg

    Gardening provides pleasure and profit to one Who does it. Gardening is one such activity that allows us to spend some time in the lap of nature and learn intersting facts about plants. Many children take up gardening as a hobby during their summer and winter vacations.............

    Crepe myrtles do something that few other blossoming trees do – they bloom in high summer. Native to southern and eastern Asia, they grow well in most parts of Australia, producing fabulous crepe-like flower heads in shades of pink, red, mauve, purple and white, through January and February. They also have lots to offer through the other seasons of the year, with brilliant foliage colour in autumn and attractive smooth bark when they’re leafless in winter, which creates an elegant silhouette in the garden landscape.

    Crepe myrtles make ideal feature trees for home gardens, because they’re compact in size, and respond well to pruning. There are also dwarf forms available, which are more shrub-like in habit, and are suitable for growing in large tubs. In recent years, the Indian Summer range of crepe myrtles has been released, offering a fabulous range of brilliant colours and excellent resistance to powdery mildew disease, which can effect some of the older varieties during humid summer weather.

    Each cultivar in the Indian Summer range is named after an Indian tribe, and the trees range is size from a compact 3 metres, up to about 6 metres in height. All crepe myrtles need to be grown in an open sunny position, and young trees should be watered generously through summer. Because of their compact size, they make very good street trees.

    Wow this is beautiful.

    I love the fact that it comes in variety of colors; love the one with light pink more.

    Crepe Myrtle will make my list of flowers 🌸 to be planted in my yard when I finally get a house of my own

    Big flowers down at Ausies, never seen it up here in Europe. Thanks for sharing!

    Periwinkle is originally native to Central and Southern Europe, from Denmark to Spain and east to West Asia. Lesser periwinkle was introduced to North America in the 1700s for ornamental purposes.

    The leaves or the whole above-ground parts of the lesser periwinkle are used in herbal medicine. Both the flowering and non-blooming shoots are harvested and dried as quickly as possible at a temperature up to 45 ° C.

    The dried plant material can be used for extracts, liquid extracts, powder, and tinctures. Periwinkle was already referred to as medicinal plant at the time of Pedanius Dioscorides (1st century AD), who recommended the use of the herb for a toothache and poisonous insect stings and animal bites.

    It is indeed a beauty to look at and no wonder they are indeed amazing looking plants :)

    Beautiful flower sir, I think I have seen this flower before but I was not knowing the name.

    Thank you for this informative flower article.

    The flowers are very beautiful, because the flowers are identical with the beauty.
