Lagerstroemia 'Cherry Dazzle'

Lagerstroemia 'Cherry Dazzle' (Lagerstroemia indica)

One side of this shrub was completely covered in flowers. We had a couple stormy days recently that wiped out a number of the flowers though and now half of the ones remaining are dead and ugly. At least there are still several unopened flower buds.

That looks nice will have to read up about them.

They are nice shrubs/trees and there are enough varieties that any garden size could have one. This is a newer variety but there are other nice small ones. Most years they stay dormant here until mid-June or even July and they are not hardy outdoors so all of mine are in containers. I think they would be cold hardy where you live but they don't do as well in cool summers or damp weather. Last year, June was cool and damp and I had to keep spraying them with fungicide to keep mildew from becoming a problem. They are nice four season plants though.
