Lagerstroemia 'Spiced Plum' PP29478

BARISTA® Collection

Common Name: Crapemyrtle

Possibly the most exciting color of the BARISTA® Collection, ‘Spiced Plum’ impresses with raspberry purple flowers are produced alongside its rosy red flower buds. The dark red stems also hold deep green leaves with heavy olive highlights, forming a compact, rounded habit as stellar as the flowers. Green seed pods follow the flowering performance. 

Crapemyrtle have long been a popular flowering shrub in the south, and it's time that these beautiful flowering shrubs made a splash in the Northern market! The hybridizing team at Walters Gardens has worked hard toward selections that perform well in our West Michigan climate. All of the members of this collection bloom on new wood, so you can expect a great flowering performance year after year.

Note to southern growers: all measurements are based on plant performance in Michigan. In warmer zones without winter die back, mature height will be taller.
