Crape Myrtle (Crape3pre)

Crape Myrtle – Lagerstroemia Indica

I acquired this Crape from a grower recently.  Today (9/9/17) I did the initial styling on it.  This is a superb, styled pre-bonsai Crape myrtle that will enhance any collection.  The trunk base is 4″ above the root crown, and it’s about 28″ tall.  Great trunk taper and movement, and great nebari. 

Can go into a bonsai pot in 2018.  Will bloom profusely in summer (white flowers).

Estimated Age: 15-20 years

Crape Myrtle (Crapebonsai5)

Crape Myrtle – Lagerstroemia Indica

Three years from a cutting.  These guys grow fast! 

I’ve been adding wire to this one since I first potted it back in June.  Today (8/11/17) I finished the basic design.  Now it’s just a matter of letting it continue to grow, removing wire as it bites in, and developing ramification which is very easy with Crapes.  I expect this one to bloom next year (I have cuttings that will bloom right after I first pot them up).  White flowers.  Lovely Chuck Iker pot.  The tree is 14″ tall.
