          Have you come across the black-leaved Lagerstroemias, @pete? Same range of flower colours as the older varieties but very useful foliage through the summer.

            No, cant say as I have, I dont think its much grown over here, mine all came from seed.
            But I did find a plant in bud in a local nursery, last year, it had been forced into early flower, though.
            I dont find them reliable floweres as they seem to come late when the weather is often not that good.

            Bit like oleanders, then. That's a shame. They're a staple late-summer shrub here, along with Hibiscus syriacus. I'll save some seed from the black one anyway, in case you want to have a go with it :biggrin:

              That would be good, mine flower most years, but setting seed, ...imposible.:biggrin:

              Just googled the black leaved varieties they look pretty impressive, mainly I need early flowering types, my last seed sowing from a few years ago are only in bud now, October, far too late for here.
