(Lava Java Crape Myrtle)



Hardiness Zones:

 10a  10b  7a  7b  8a  8b  9a  9b

Quick Overview:

Light your late summer garden on fire with beautiful magenta rose flowers that are produced on well-formed panicles. Earlier in the summer, enjoy this as a foliage plant with its low, rounded shape of glossy, deep green leaves.

Description

Best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Does well in loamy, clay soils with good drainage. Benefits from a slow release fertilizer. Overly fertile soils tend to produce lush foliage growth at the expense of flowering with somewhat increased susceptibility to winter injury. Water roots deeply, particularly in dry spells, but avoid wetting the foliage.
