Compact and guaranteed to flower in the north.

Lagerstroemia Barista® ‘Bubble Tea’

Barista® Series of Lagerstroemias Coming to us from the brilliant breeders at Waters Gardens in Michigan, this new line of compact, zone 5 hardy crapemyrtles have lovely, dark leaves and brightly colored flowers that bloom in late summer. Attractive, semi-glossy, medium green foliage gives a show all spring and summer on a compact, tightly rounded plant. In late summer, flower buds bubble up to the top unfurling to enormous, bright lilac purple flower clusters. Green seed pods follow the flowering performance.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
