Crepe Myrtle

It is late Autumn in Australia, and the exotic trees are showing their true colours as we approach Winter.

The following images are of the Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica x L. fauriei) Natchez, taken at the  Botanic Gardens in Colac, Australia.

In summer this Crepe Myrtle would be a mass of small white flowers, its beauty is now the colour of its leaves.

    • Thanks Robyn. You can’t beat autumn colours. If it wasn’t for our ancestors planting trees from the northern hemisphere we wouldn’t get autumn colours like these. Our native trees remain green all year.
