Confused Aren't all in the Black Diamond Series of Crepe Myrtle considered Lagerstroemia indica? I noticed in the ATP database only one (Ebony Fire) is listed as species indica: http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Black+Diamond+Lag... The others just say Crepe Myrtle. I didn't submit a proposal to add it to the others because I figured I might be making another database error, causing more work for the moderators.

Edited to say: Sorry, I forgot to type in a title for this thread!

Leaving the species off is probably appropriate. The Ebony series is probably indica but it's hard to determine for sure. I'll edit the lone indica to remove the species. Smiling
