The young red shoots make room for big shiny leaves, purple green to bronze, depending on the conditions. The early flowers bloom as very thick fuchsia coloured, nearly red thyrses.
BRAISE D'ÉTÉ ®, CAMAÏEU D'ÉTÉ ®, FUCHSIA D'ÉTÉ ® and VIOLET D'ÉTÉ ® are the four varieties of the INDIYA CHARMS ® range of our program. They offer pretty shades of mauve, violet, pink and red, adding bright summer colours to shrub borders and mixed hedges.
Stem-grafted, in pots or in the ground, they decorate any entrance, terrace or, more traditionally, can be planted in a row.
They can also be trained along a south facing wall.
Balanced fertilization in spring, regular watering in summer.
In February-March cut the previous year's main branches, keeping well balanced and airy branches in the centre, to let the light through.
INDIYA CHARMS ® 's Lagerstroemia varieties are remarkable for the precocity and quality of their flowering, more suited for mild summers.
They are the fruit of a long selection work; they have been chosen for their resistance to low temperatures (hardy to -15°C when fully grown) and to powdery mildew.
These varieties can be grown as clumps or stem-grafted or half stem-grafted.
