Its attractive flowers appear in beautiful bouquets in red, pink, violet or white. They flower in summer.
They are used as single specimens, in small groups, in rows and in large pots for patios and terraces. They are also used as cut flowers.
Lagerstroemia indica prefers full sun but also grows well in semi-shade. They withstand occasional light frosts.
It likes cool, sandy soils rich in organic matter. Planting is done in spring or autumn.
Water regularly throughout the year so that the substrate does not dry out completely, water sparingly in winter.
Ideally, this plant should be fertilised at the end of winter with compost and in summer with mineral fertiliser every 15 days.
The tips of the branches should be lightly pruned in autumn or winter to maintain a compact crown.
It is a plant that is not usually attacked by the usual pests and diseases.
Propagation is by cuttings at the end of summer and from seeds sown in spring at 20-25 ºC.
