06 May Lagerstroemia indica Pink Velour®
As if the blooms were not dazzling enough, the foliage does not disappoint as it transitions from a deep red, reminiscent of wine, to a remarkable purplish-green hue. The foliage alone provides a spectacle that entertains from spring to fall.
Highly versatile in the garden, this compact, multi-stemmed shrub flourishes as either a container plant or part of a border design. Proven to be among the hardiest of the crepe myrtles, Pink Velour® has no problem toughing out an early frost. Also, it has been praised for its high resistance to powdery mildew, a common garden pest, as well as drought.
Lagerstroemia indica Pink Velour® is the 2015 Scott Associates spring dividend. Members can pick up their dividend at the Unusual Tropicals and Annuals Sale on Saturday, May 16 from 10 am to 3 pm.
