MIMIE® Fuchsia: covering growth, prolific bright flowers, early and long lasting

Description

This Lagerstroemia variety bred by Alain DABADIE had firstly been chosen for its growth as carpeting ground cover or weeping if the plant is stem trained. The cultivation takes on this shape naturally, without pruning.
Further on, MIMIE® Fuchsia 'DABLAGE01' is floriferous right from its early age. It blooms precociously and continues all summer long producing successive new flowers. The 4 cm long florets in the form of remarkable raspberry red grapes can reach up to 30 cm. The flowering season is from mid June to mid October; these dates vary according to the climate.
Finally, this cultivation only needs little or no maintenance. It is a healthy plant, no sensitivity to powdery mildew has been noticed.
The novel shape, the precocity, the duration of the bright coloured flowers, it all allows an original use of the crape myrtle, and this even in a wide climatic zone. MIMIE® Fuchsia has its place as ground cover or, when grown as a small standard, is particularly considered for balconies and terraces and at last, more traditionally, in bushy clumps.

Care

Little or no care. Prune in February - March to maintain the plant in the wanted dimensions.
