Lagerstroemia ‘Tuscarora’, Crepe Myrtle
An icon of Melbourne summer time, this brightly coloured tree will bring joy to your garden all year long. This sun loving medium sized tree will grow to 8m tall by 4m wide, and will respond well to being pruned to fit into the desired space. Lagerstroemia Tuscarora has the best iconic pink summertime blooms that Crepe Myrtles are so well known for. Foliage during the growing season is dark, glossy green and in Autumn will transform the landscape with its bright mix of reds, copper and gold. As the tree ages it will develop a beautiful satin like bark on the trunk and main stems, giving this stunning tree year round appeal. This bright and cheery tree will quickly become a firm favourite and its Summer floral display will be something to look forward to year after year.
