Lagerstrormia indica Indiya Charms


We're excited to present the long-awaited, 'must-have' specimen for the patio. Its often used in Europe as an interesting subject for the pot and its dense shape and small leaves allow it to be successfully pruned and trained into a standard form which resembles a giant lollipop. It's the earliest to flower in the summer season so you can enjoy this variety in June as well as the normal July to October. Additionally, it also has amazingly unique colour-changing blooms which can appear in a myriad of tones from white, pink, purple and mauve. Hardy to -15°C and thrives in a sunny sheltered location.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
