LAGERSTROEMIA INDICA 'WATERMELON RED' (STANDARD TREE FORM)
WATERMELON RED CRAPE MYRTLE

A deciduous tree with a slender trunk and an upright, open branching habit. Frilly, watermelon-red flower clusters develop at branch tips. Unique flower texture is like ruffled tissue-paper.

Alternately arranged leaves are oval, sometimes rounded, and somewhat wavy-edged. Bark exfoliates with age.
