This tree is typically small to medium in size, growing up to 20-25 feet tall and 15-20 feet wide, making it a great choice for small gardens, backyards, and patios. It has a beautiful ornamental appearance during bloom season, making it an excellent addition to any garden.

The leaves of this tree are elongated and slim, with a glossy green appearance. They change to shades of yellow, orange, and red before falling off in the winter months. The bark of the Lagerstroemia indica is smooth, with shades of grey, tan or brown which adds another element of visual appeal. However, it is the flowers that steal the show. In summer, this tree blooms with showy, ruffled flowers, in shades of white to pink, deep red, lavender and purple. The aesthetics of this tree are unmatched, making it a must-have in any garden.

This tree is relatively low maintenance and adapts well to various soil types, making it easy for any gardener to plant. It prefers full sun and can tolerate some shade, but its flowering capabilities are enhanced in full sun. Lagerstroemia indica is drought tolerant, which allows for conserving watering whilst enjoying its stunning appearance. Proper pruning and shaping, ensuring both structural integrity and growth, and avoiding harsh or heavy pruning in late fall or early winter will help improve its growth and ensure its longevity.

Lagerstroemia indica is a popular landscape plant and is commonly used in residential and commercial properties. In addition to its stunning appearance, it is also an ideal tree for attracting wildlife such as bees and butterflies to the garden. Moreover, this tree can also serve as an attractive privacy screen, shielding unsightly views with its vibrant foliage.

Overall, Lagerstroemia indica is a stunning and low-maintenance perennial that is sure to be a showstopper in any garden. With its vibrant color, adaptability and easy care nature, it is definitely worth considering for your next garden project.
