“Lagerstroemia indica ‘Muskogee’ is a relatively new variant of the Crape Myrtle and makes for a lovely garden tree for late summer flower, stunning autumn foliage colour, and year round bark interest.

This multi-stemmed tree/shrub is compact, upright to spreading, moderately hardy, and deciduous. It has exfoliating, brown and grey bark, with oblong to ovate, dark green leaves turning orange-red in autumn, and panicles of beautiful lilac-pink to lavender flowers from summer into autumn.

Likes most soil types but prefers free draining soils, a south facing sheltered position with full sun and flourishes off the reflected heat bouncing off walls and patios. Will grow up to an average height of 5 metres when fully formed.
