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

This multi-stemmed tree/small 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, dark green leaves, purple-flushed when young. In late summer, if the weather has been hot, it produces pink flowers with crinkled petals

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 3 metres when fully formed.
