Lagerstroemia 'Natchez' - crepe myrtle

APPEARANCE : Summer-flowering large shrub or small tree with paper-like white blooms and small oval shaped leaves. Deciduous through winter, with autumn leaf colour before leaf-fall. Vigorous growing variety with smooth grey bark and a gently weeping habit.
USES: Ideal for light screening, topiary, hedge planting and large containers. Coppice (hard prune) for larger leaves and upright growth.
PLANTING: Plant in free draining soil in a full sun location. Mulch after planting to retain moisture and regulate soil temperatures as the young plant establishes.
CARE: Water regularly during the first 8-12 weeks until the plant is established, then during dry periods until the plant develops a trunk. Drought tolerant. Prune in autumn following leaf drop for prolific summer flowering and a dense growth habit; or deadhead after first flowers to keep an elegant shape and encourage a second flower flush. Fertilise using a slow release fertiliser twice yearly, thrive in clay soils.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: Up to 8m H x 6m W.
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
