|Botanical Pronunciation||la-ger-STRE-mee-a IN-dih-kuh|
|Lore||Crape myrtles have become one of the most common and reliable flowering trees for the American South.|
|Average Size at Maturity||15 to 20 ft. tall and wide.|
|Design Ideas||This variety is not mildew resistant, but is still a gorgeous high-profile street tree that offers civic beauty without the litter and invasiveness of more commonly used street trees. An equally good shade tree for city yards with a bonus of flowers and fall color. Its size makes it perfect for light shading around decks and patios, to dress up lawn-edge planters, or as a single stunning tree for the front yard. Frame a long driveway with them for a formal statement. Best of all, it is reasonably drought resistant.|

|Watering Needs||Once established, needs only occasional watering.|
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, shear annually after flowering.
