If you have ever driven through Central France in summer and seen wonderful trees plastered with pink, purple or red flowers, chances are they are Crepe Myrtle, or Lagerstroemia. Now you can grow these amazing wonders over here too.
Thanks to new breeding in Italy, these are both compact and free flowering in the cooler UK climate, and make stunning and very hardy summer patio plants for smaller pots. 'Kisses' is one of the ‘With Love’ series of 4 colours and is a lovely bold neon bright magenta pink. ‘Eternal’ has the most irresistible lilac purple flowers that stand out beautifully against a backdrop of lush dark green foliage.
They will literally be smothered in tissue-like bold & bright flowers all summer-long and will become a mecca for bees and butterflies, bringing your garden to life with the buzz of beneficial wildlife.
Very hardy to -15C or more too, despite their delicate and exotic looks, this beautiful pair from the ‘With Love’ series will bring wonderful colour to your beds, borders or patio pots.
Supplied as a pair of well-branched plants approx. 35cm tall in 13cm pots, to plant straight out. Dormant in winter, so no leaves on Oct - April.
