With this kit handmade in the USA, you can nurture your own Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica), one of the easiest and loveliest bonsai trees to grow. During the second year, this fast-growing tree blooms with tiny pink and red flowers during the summer months. A deciduous tree with peeling grey-on-red bark, the Crepe Myrtle’s leaves go from green to red during its second spring. Crepe Myrtle bonsai trees are also beautiful during the winter months when its leaves have fallen and it reveals a wonderful trunk color and distinctive branching.
The tree needs partial to full sun. Water before the soil becomes dry, however your bonsais needs to less water in May-June to encourage flowering. Image shown is tree after 5 years.
