Lagerstroemia indica Best Red

This is an extremely architectural plant that wants you to stop ✋ drool and stare!  Offering flawless leaves of a deep, dark burgundy almost black which sit on pink/grey mottled branches and in summer it is covered in red flowers. A medium grower this guy does well in any size yard and can even handle living in your pot.
