Lagerstroemia Indica “Black Pearl”
Small evergreen ornamental shrub with a dense and short growth habit. It produces leaves of a very dark crimson red, almost black all year round. In Spring and Autumn, its has fuchsia and jagged flowers. You will have to fertilize it from March to November, with a fertilizer for flowering plants, either liquid or granular, at least once every 30 days. If it is planted in the open ground, you’ll have to water it occasionally during the vegetative phase, roughly between April and October. If it is planted in a pot, it must be regularly watered from March to October. Every year, after flowering, you’ll have to remove dead branches and flowers (unless you want to get fruits). Slightly cut protuberant or weak sprouts, but avoid extreme cuts.
