Product information "Crape Myrtle 'Violet d'été'"

Lagerstroemia 'Violet d`été' blooms from July to September and forms large umbels at the end of the one-year-old branches during this time. The individual, small flowers have wavy petals. The curled flowers give the plant an exotic appearance.
Pruning Lagerstroemia 'Violet d'été'
To get a nice flowering, a strong cut should be made in the spring at the end of March to early April; all of the shoots should be shortened to about 15 cm. Then Lagerstroemia 'Violet d`été' will reach a height of about 2 m and a width of also 2 m.
Location requirements
Not only the flowers are exotic, the entire plant is an exotic. Lagerstroemia indica 'Violet d`été', as the second name 'indica' suggests, comes from the tropical and subtropical regions of Asia. This origin derives a lot from the ideal location. Lagerstroemia indica 'Violet d`été' is a true sun-worshiper; the plant should have sunshine from morning to evening, a sheltered location is also very nice, which allows it to warm up quickly and have enough energy to bloom. The soil should be permeable, but still well supplied with water.
Hardiness of the new Lagerstroemia  'Violet d'été'
In the winter, temperatures of -15°C are tolerated well; only young plants should be protected from the low temperatures by a protective mulch layer. It is also advantageous if Lagerstroemias are planted deep, which helps the plant easily recover after an exceptionally cold winter by means of the buried and hidden buds. So do not despair after a cold winter. A Lagerstroemia that is planted really deep keeps coming back – albeit with some delay and a little later flowering period (August instead of July).
