Lagerstroemia indica ÔVelmaÕs Royal DelightÕ

SOLD OUT SOLD OUT SOLD OUT VelmaÕs Royal Delight is an upright, arching Monrovia hybrid that reaches about 8Õ in height and 7Õ in width, producing large, drooping panicles of magenta florets. Extra-long bloom period. Excellent in mixed borders. Note: Regardless of hardiness zone, all crape myrtles are subject to die-back at temps below 15 degrees. Probability of this happening is increased by pruning in fall or winter. Prune only in earliest spring. Bloom will be on new wood. Photos: Monrovia; HGTV Gardens; Texas A&M
