Tree Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Natchez' Crepe Myrtle (white)




Description This small, deciduous tree creates great interest throughout the year. In summer, clusters of spectacular white, crepe-paper like flowers are produced. Following this, the dark green leaves add further interest as they transition into autumn, turning a rich bronze-red colour before falling. Bark also provides colour as the tree matures, with its flakiness revealing the rich, brown underbark. A beautiful growth habit and resistant to mildew, this variety will tolerate periods of dryness once established.    
Mature Size 5-6 x 4m    
Uses A fantastic feature tree both in autumn and spring. It can be used in streetscape, parks and gardens of any size.    
Position & Soil Prefers a well-drained humus rich soil in a full sun position. Can tolerate most conditions but moisture is preferred in dry periods when young.
