This tropical flowering tree is one of the most outstanding summer bloomers.
Lagerstroemia speciosa is a larger form of the more commonly grown L. indica (Crape myrtle.)
It is called Queen Crape Myrtle because it’s the Queen of the Crape Myrtles, dominating with grand size and larger, crinkled flowers.
The name Crape myrtle is given to these tree/shrubs because of the flowers which look as if made from delicate crape paper.
Lagerstroemia speciosa is a large tree growing up to 50′ but it can be kept smaller by trimming.
It stands on an attractive, spotted bark that often peels. This bark is commercially used and is a valuable timber.
The large leaves are also appealing as they turn red right before they drop in the winter.
