Lagerstroemia ‘Sweet Macchiato’
This upright, branched and bushy selection boasts very dark looking foliage. The leaves are dark blue-green, with the glossy deep red new growth making the tips look like they are on fire. In late summer, glossy red buds burst open to sweet, hot pink flower clusters with mustard yellow stamens. Green seed pods follow the flowering performance.
