Common Crape Myrtle

Common Crape Myrtle is the smaller version of the Queen Crape Myrtle.  They are as short as 18 inches ( as this one) to as 40 feet.  The flowers are in shades of pink, purple and white.

Botanical name: Lagerstroemia indica    Family: Lythraceae (Crape Myrtle family)

This one (below and to the right)  taken at Gun Rock Colony Secunderabad – August 2011.  I do not know if this is a Thorel’s Crape Myrtle  or Tropical Crape Myrtle.  But aren’t they so pretty!  Just love the purple and white.  So dainty.
