Lagerstroemia ‘Lipan’, Crepe Myrtle
While some Crepe Myrtles are loud and bold, the flowers of Lagerstroemia Lipan a soft, delicate and cool, even in the hottest of Summers. This delightful small feature tree is the perfect addition to small gardens or courtyards. Glossy green dense foliage is the perfect backdrop for the mass display of mauve coloured flowers in summer. In Autumn the leaves turn a fiery mix of reds, copper and gold. The mottled bark of the trunk and branches is a sculptural feature throughout winter, adding to this small trees appeal. Growing to 4m tall by 3m wide, they are an easy care tree and that works in almost any setting.
