|Tree||Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Sioux' Crepe Myrtle (hot musk pink)||
|Description||Creating quite the visual impact over a lengthy period, this variety offers masses of intense, pink flowers over summer, followed by stunning, rich foliage colour in tones of yellow, red and orange through autumn, before shedding its leaves. When mature, the bark of this variety will peel, creating a mottled effect to reveal the beautiful caramel-pink colour of its underbark.|
|Mature Size||5 x 4m|
|Uses||With good autumn colour and long summer flowering, this variety makes a great specimen tree for the small garden or landscape. Works well in streetscapes.|
|Position & Soil||Prefers well-drained humus rich soil in a full sun position. Can tolerate most conditions but moisture is preferred in dry periods when young.|
