Basic Facts

The ‘Lipan’ Crape Myrtle (botanical name: Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei ‘Lipan’) is a beautiful small-to-medium size plant that grows vibrant purple-pink flowers and is most mildew-resistant It is native to many regions of Asia and brought to North America in the 18th century.

This Crape Myrtle produces most of its flowers from summer through fall. It grows upright and starts to spread out as it matures. This deciduous plant grows dark green foliage that turns the perfect autumn red and orange through the fall. The ‘Lipan’ variety can grow between 8-15 feet tall and up to 10 feet wide.

Tree Care

The ‘Lipan’ Crape Myrtle performs well in multiple regions and hardiness zones due to its tolerance to drought, humidity, and heat. This trait makes them great flowering options for the Southwestern states. It can even handle poor soil but prefers a balanced pH level.

The ‘Lipan’ loves full sun exposure and is easy to grow in well-drained soils. Once established, it develops a higher tolerance for drought and can handle fewer watering sessions. Always water deeply to ensure optimum root structure. To help retain moisture, we recommend using mulch around the tree.

Landscape Uses

This Crape Myrtle can be used in different ways such as a focal point in your lawn, adding color to bland areas of your landscape, or creating summer shade for your home or patio space.

When the flowers bloom, you will even see butterflies and other nectar/pollen gatherers throughout your yard. For a unique and colorful hedge, plant the ‘Lipan’ Crape Myrtle in rows along borderlines.
