Anyone on the Gold Coast interested in purchasing white Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia 'Natchez I believe). I have 7 plants at $15 each in 200mm pots ready to flower. Funds will go back into the Sensory Gardens in Nerang. Pick up Tallebudgera.
It’s a small, deciduous tree that creates great interest throughout the year. In summer, clusters of spectacular white, crepe-paper like flowers flourish. Following this, the dark green leaves add further interest as they transition into autumn, turning a rich bronze-red colour before falling. Bark also provides colour as the tree matures, with its flakiness revealing the rich, brown underbark. A beautiful growth habit and resistant to mildew, this variety will tolerate periods of dryness once established.
These were all planned for the Sensory Gardens within Nerang. They were approved for planting but then we were later told by Council there were not on the ‘approved’ council tree planting list. Without going into full detail and finger pointing - it does make it very hard to make a true sensory garden.... #crepe #crepemyrtle #floweringtree #goldcoastgardening #goldcoastgarden #trees #plants #gardening #gardeningaustralia at Gold Coast, Queensland
