Bark like satin

Largerstroemia indica 
Crepe Myrtle
One of trees which really shines in the winter sunlight is the Crepe Myrtle. The satin smooth bark reflects light onto the surrounding garden and contrasts well with the sombre green clipped star jasmine planted underneath.


  1. hi

    this is the Lagerstroemia india that i know... is it same ?

  2. Yes with the pink or mauve or white flowers in summer

  3. i planted a lot of this...
    they are relatively small compare to yours...

    it has multiple stems.. stems are about 1cm diameter, grow for about 1-2m, then flower in white-pink-red. colour of bark is dark brown, not silvery as yours..
