Get to know Lagerstroemia

The Crape Myrtle (or “Lagerstroemia”) is a flowering bush with caduceus foliage, suitable for mild climates.

During the period between May and October, it offers a magnificent flowering, framed by a fresh, brilliant green foliage. During winter it maintains its elegant aspect, primarily due to its particularly shiny wood.

It is resistant to pollution and to the majority of diseases; its abundant flowers make it suitable for small gardens as well as for large parks, and its slender roots system does not damage footpaths or kerbs.
