Lagerstroemia indica – Crape Myrtle

This is a vigorous small tree, growing to 6M. Frothy pannicles of pink flowers cover the new growth for many weeks in summer.

This is a lovely, reliable tree that deserves to be more common around coastal Tasman than it is. The dense foliage also provides good nesting sites for song birds.
