Lagerstroemia speciosa (Giant Crape-myrtle, Queen's Crape-myrtle, Banabá Plant for Philippines, or Pride of India[2]) is a species of Lagerstroemia native to tropical southern Asia.  
It is a small to medium-sized tree growing to 20 metres (66 ft) tall, with smooth, flaky bark. The leaves are deciduous, oval to elliptic, 8–15 cm (3.1–5.9 in) long and 3–7 cm (1.2–2.8 in) broad, with an acute apex. The flowers are produced in erect panicles 20–40 cm (7.9–16 in) long, each flower with six white to purple petals 2–3.5 cm (0.79–1.4 in) long. 
It is also widely cultivated as an ornamental plant in tropical and subtropical areas.

Attaching an image of an Alexadrine Parakeet on the fruits of Lagerstroemia speciosa. I have not seen this bird eating fleshy fruits or figs. I have seen it on Teminalia chebula and Terminalia arjun. May be because of its stronger beak (in comparison to Rosering Parakeet) it prefers fruit which are difficult to penetrate.

had planted this as Lagerstroemia reginae or Taman in marathi.
But bloom tells me that its something else.
Pl id this.

It is the same...let it bloom fully..

Yes, Lagerstroemia only. Species to be determined. 

I think Lagerstroemia speciosa (syn:  Lagerstroemia flos-reginae Retz.) as per images herein.

Thank you ... Here is the first pic I received.
Will post more pics when I visit the place.
We did tree plantation in a school with kids in Jan 2017, and first year itself its bloomed now.
Thanks for everyone's help.

Attaching a collage of Alexandrine Parakeet feeding on the fruits of Lagerstroemia speciosa (JARUL).
I have recorded this bird feeding on fruits of Teminalia chebula, Terminalia arjun and Lagerstroemia speciosa.
But I have not seen Rose-ring Parakeet feeding on these fruits.
And I have not seen Alexandrine Parakeet feeding on the fruits which are relished by Rose-ring Parakeet.

[efloraofindia:34589] Pink flower - ID : 13 posts by 10 authors. Attachments (1)
What is the botanical and common name of this tree please? Is there another species with similar flowers in purple? 
My guess is Lagerstroemia indica (Lythraceae)
Yes... Lagerstroemia indica. Incidently I saw the same colour in Lagerstroemia speciosa in our area, but of course that is a much taller plant with larger different leaves.
I am also with that.
Lagerstroemia indica is a shrub with alternate leaves.
this plant is Lagerstroemia thoreli Gagnepin....(pink flowers, can be observed in Fort area in Mumbai , and at Goregaon). the other with violet flower is Lagerstroemia reginae Roxb.,
please find the key to identify the species:-
1. Shrub; Six stamens much larger than the rest.......L. indica
1. Trees; Stamens sub equal...................................2
 2. Flowers up to 0.7 cm across; Very large trees......L. parviflora
 2. Flower more than 3 cm across; Small tree...........3
  3. Bark peeling; Flowers purple.............................L. reginae
  3. Bark rough; Flowers pink..................................L. thoreli 
Why is it that the general population in this country are better at naming plants than bird or mammal species? Is it to do with economics? I find it frustrating that people in my town, (Panchkula) cannot name more than 6 bird species in their own language and cannot differentiate between leopards and cheetahs!!!!
... my thought: to name a body or thing is to identify with, rather than without.
That is, we name for the sole reason of identifying the object which has gained importance to humankind in some way or the other.
Much of the importance lies in relation to human health by way of medicinal values the flora has to provide, closely following is economical importance of the plant (or any part of the plant).
This applies to fauna too ... all those creatures whose relation to humans have some kind of importance are certainly named.
When we know a person by name we feel more familiarity or attachment than just he or she in the mind. Same way i feel if we know the names of plants and animals we feel or have more attachment for them. Say when i go outstation and see a sparrow still i feel ha it is the same as Thane, or a kingfisher or even some star in the sky. And then we are happy to have a same campanion as of our residence.
But for this i feel that our parents, Grandparents, friends do talk with us related to flora or fauna right from childhood. Not in scientific language but in common language. Or we are curious enough to ask about it.
I feel names are present in all language, what is laking is our knowledge about it. I feel that it is our resposibility too to make the people aware about it by giving lectures, or writing articles, arranging naturewalks, going to scholl and talking with kids etc.
I too think Lagerstroemia with pink flowers is L. thorelii
Yes, Lagerstroemia thorellii ... oversaw the size of flowers ... not L. indica.
Yes ... distinctly ribbed calyx and much shorter petal claw (L. indica almost as long or longer than limb), and distinct petiole (L. indica not more than 1 mm). An important feature of L. thorelli is also flowers fading or mottled with white. Here we can see this only in one or two flowers.
As per Trees of Delhi (2005), Lagerstroemia thorellii is misaapplied in India for Lagerstroemia speciosa  - from me.  L. reginae Roxb. is also a syn. of Lagerstroemia speciosa

Plant for ID: I bought this plant (2 photos of same plant of last yr and this yr) as Lagerstroemia speciosa (Taman) from local nursery in Mumbai.
However it is not like L.speciosa which has much bigger leaves and spreading branches. It is neither like L.indicus which has smaller leaves than this specimen.
This plant has more close knit branchlets, smaller leaves and smooth ash stem. It is decidous.
Can you help identify this species plss...
This is Lagerstroemia thorelli - an exotic, a native of Brazil. Please check these links for my photographs and our previous discussion on this.

are you sure ... ?
then thank you very much for your ID
great, I wish you well and hope you get tonnes of flowers
if you keep pruning it the shape will be like in that picture in the site of the andhra nursery.. or toptropicals

Flowers of Lagerstroemia indica: Posting flowers of Lagerstroemia indica L. Photographed on 24th July, 2011 in Besant Nagar, Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Small to medium sized garden tree. 
Had you given the size of flowers, it would have been easy to confirm the ID. They appear to be about 6 cm wide and would be L. reginae. The other sp. L. indica has flowers about 2 cm only, petals are clawed and they are in dense panicles. 
it may be Lagerstroemia indica L pls give a complete twing photo clearly showing leaves and infloresence. 
I think it is Lagerstroemia flos-reginae
Agree with ... These seem to be the flowers of L.speciosa. Sending my photographs L.speciosa flowers for comparison in a separate mail. 
Looks like I was mistakenly placing too much emphasis on flower size and density of flowers on the flowering panicle. Superficially it looked quite different from L. speciosa I had photographed earlier in Adyar Theosophical Society Gardens. Thank you and others for correcting me. Am attaching the photograph which I had earlier identified as L. speciosa to this mail.

Tree ID- Is this Pride of India?: Date:01/04/2012. Location: Cox Town, Bangalore

Looks like Lagerstoemia speciosa to me. I imagine why they call it pride of India. This should an exotic plant.
Yes indeed it is- the local name is jarul I think. Just. 1 week after I took this photo, the purple flowers are blooming :)
Yes. Looks like Lagerstoemia speciosa ( syn. Lagerstroemia flos reginae, ) only. I am sending the photographs from Mysore city in a separate mail. The tree is in full bloom in various parts of this city.

ID No. 100412 MS 93-Lagerstroemia speciosa, syn. Lagerstroemia flos reginae,:  
JARUL / JAROOL in Bengali.

Lagerstroemia sp. ID from Hooghly 19-04-12 SK-3: Found this Lagerstroemia sp. bloomimg with all its glory. I think it is Lagerstroemia speciosa, but these flowers are more violet (& less pink) than my earlier records in 2009. My questions are -
1) What are the differences between L. speciosa & L. indica ?
2) Is there any other species that looks like L. speciosa ?
Species : Lagersroemia sp.
Habit & Habitat : tree, about 20-25 ft., roadside plantation
Date : 17-04-2012, 18-04-2012
Place : Krishnarampur (Hooghly), WB
Affirmative. This is Lagerstroemia speciosa [L. flos-regina] locally called Jarul / Taman. The other species that can be confused with this is L. thorelli - a native of Brazil.

Is this Lagerstroemia speciosa:  First time in life, I have tried to identify a tree and I think I have got
it right (with the help of flowersofindia.net). Is it Lagerstroemia speciosa? It was a medium-sized tree, purple flowers, blooming in summer.
Affirmative. This is Lagerstroemia speciosa [L.flos-regina] locally called Jarul / Taman. Its also called the Queen of Flowers / Pride of India and is the State Tree of Maharashtra.

... small correction: jarul / taman is the State Flower, amba (mango) is the State Tree of Maharashtra.
Conceded. Thanks ... My 'Armed Jarul Tree' [please refer to my previous posts on this] was also flowering yesterday. Sending a few photographs.

Lagerstroemia: can u guide me for the difference between Lagerstroemia tomentosa and Legerstreomia microcarpa. i am a bit confused as according to me the flowers in both the cases is white however i think there is a substantial differene in the bark. i am attaching photographs of both the plants one named Lag tom is surely (i suppose) Lagerstroemia tomentosa and the other, named Lag mic, with a different kind of bark but almost similar fruits is Lagerstroemia microcarpa ?

Yes very beautiful tree, Lagerstroemia speciosa (Linn.) Pers. is state flower tree of Maharashtra. The tree was named by Carl Linnaeus in the 18th century for his plant lover friend the Swedish merchant Mannus von Lagerstrom..

Flora picture of the year 2012 - Sandhya Sasidharan:  A picture of a Lagerstroemia speciosa tree, nothing rare or spectacular but a tree close to my heart. 
It was photographed last April from the Trivandrum Public Library compound
This tree perhaps as old as the library always was a beautiful and green presence.
But sadly when I went to the library yesterday I found the tree gone.
Hadn't been to the library for the past two months and didn't know that the old friend had fallen.
All I could see was the fallen tree chopped up in a pile. But from the base of the fallen trunk new shoots had sprung up, like flames of hope. I chose this picture as the flora picture of the year 2012 as a tribute to this tree friend. Also remembering that even the things we deem common have so much beauty, enriching our lives.They too are disappearing fast...
Wishing that in 2013 this Earth of ours will be a lot more greener, beautiful and peaceful. Let us all put in our best for this green pursuit.
Very beautiful and touching flora pic ...
yes. when a much loved tree dies or is felled, it feels so sad... but like you said the sprouts are the new hope
Why nothing spectacular. It is spectacular. Aptly the flower of this tree has been selected as the State flower of Maharashtra.
Nice story associated with a beautiful tree. I have added this to Flora Picture 2012

Lagerstroemia saplings Attachments (5). 2 posts by 2 authors. 
I ordered these (enclosed pics) saplings as Lagerstroemia lanceolata (Nana as called locally in Marathi).
However, I presume these are not L.lanceolata which have much smaller and rounder leaves.
Can you confirm if these are L.speciosa (Taman) or other spp ?
This looks like Jarul / Taman [L.speciosa] to me too. A close-up of the leaves would help.

Tree found on the outskirts of 
BangaloreJune 21st
Probably some species of Lagerstroemia?
Can it be narrowed down further without fully open flowers, sir?
The tree is Lagerstroemia speciosa itself.
 
Will be glad to know the name in Gujarati for Lagerstroemia speciosa.
three names are  seen...
moto bhandaro:  મોટો  ભંડારો
jarul:
જારૂલ
and ful bhondari:   ફૂલ
ભોંડારી
hope it helps
મોટો ભોંડારો [Moto Bhondaro], જારૂલ [Jarul], and તામન [Taman] have all been used in the absence of an original Gujarati name for L. speciosa. Being a cultivated import in Gujarat, these names have been adopted from the native names of this tree in other vernacular languages. The latter, when written as તામણ, is also a familiar synonym of ધામણ [Dhaman] - Grewia tiliifolia.
The natural occurrence of such an iconic tree tends to be eclipsed by its widespread cultivation; it would be pertinent to remember its natural distribution in this context. 
"The tree is indigenous to the Western Ghats from about Belgaum southwards through North and South Kanara to Malabar and Travancore, in evergreen forests, especially in the neighbourhood of rivers and streams. It is also found in Ceylon, Burma and eastwards to the Malay Peninsula, Australia and northwards to China." - H. Santapau, Common Trees, 1966.
Thank you very much ... for the names, and the excellent elaboration.
Especially about its use as ornamental / avenue tree almost all over country, it always made me wonder about range of distribution in India. Its flower is designated as State Flower of Maharashtra - the state government must have done this choice based on some good reasoning.
Thanks very much, ... for your inputs too; they help.

Very beautiful as always..
In the book "Plant Resources of Western Ghats and Lowlands of Dakshina Kannada and Udupi District" (by BV Shetty, KM Kaveriappa & KG Bhat), there are two more names for this tree - "chella" and "nandi" - in addition to "hole daasavala". Would these be the Tulu names of this tree? They are mentioned simply as "local names" in the book.
Thanks very much ... for this feed.
ENVIS / FRLHT does mention transcribed Kannada names: challa, chella. 
I tried all sorts of permutation / combination of cha / che + lla in Kannad script - but was not able to get satisfactory results in Kannad site nor in the dictionaries that I refer - Kannada Kasturi and Rev. Ferdinand Kittel's.
Since names in Tulu are not mentioned explicitly, I would consider them to be Kannarese.
ನಂದಿ nandi in Kittel's dictionary seems to be a generic name (with prefixed descriptors) given to wood of various trees including couple of Lagerstroemia sp. (microcarpa and parviflora).
ENVIS / FRLHT for L. reginae (syn of L. speciosa) lists nandi. I would go with including this "nandi" in my notes. 
Thank you very much ...
I will re look (search) and revert if I get any lead on challa / chella with help from Kannad folks.
The introduction of the book (by Shetty et al.) begins with a description of Tulu Nadu. BV Shetty, a remarkable botanist, is no more. I was given this book last year by his niece, she had spoken about several Tulu names in it during conversation and hence the query. I can only surmise that the book contains a mix of local names in the prevalent regional languages, the dominant being Tulu. An explicit mention about the language of the local names would have been ideal. 
Found an old "Tulu-English Dictionary" (1886) by Rev. A. Männer and you might be interested in downloading it from this hyperlink. It contains "the names of about 600 plants" with the following prefatory remark: "About half are taken from 'Five Hundred Indian Plants' by C. Stolz, and the others have been obtained in other ways, careful investigation being required in some cases." [pp. v-vi].
Have attached the screenshots of some relevant portions. There are some entries on challa / challamara / chalimara [pp. 223-224] but they don't seem to match with L. speciosa.

Thank you very much ... for this response.
Local names for plants in South Kanara district by default would be in Kannada, often shared by Tulu, unless has its own distinct name(s). South Kanara district is the native place of Tulu community. A resource like dictionary is a great help to reach to exact words.
I have downloaded the "Tulu-English Dictionary" ... though bit slow in rendering pages and search. It is certainly a great help in checking transcribed Kannada / Tulu words.
Yes, could locate ಚಲ್ಳಮರ challamara - meaning, monkey-fruit tree. 
ಚಲ್ಳಮರ does not yield any results on search. BUT, since it has an entry in dictionary, I would place confidence on using the name holedachalla appearing in ENVIS/FRLHT for L.speciosa.
ಹೊಳೆ hole = river
ದ da = pertaining
ಚಲ್ಳ challa = some part (most probably fruit) of monkey-fruit tree
thus ಹೊಳೆದಚಲ್ಳ holedachalla
Will include the name for L. speciosa for Kannada.
Many thanks ... for your continuous support on providing various links / web resources making it easier for me to compile names in regional languages, especially the links to Tulu - English dictionary. In due course, I have gathered few links which help me additionally in getting to Tulu and Kannada names.
ಚೆಲ್ಲ chella OR ಚೆಳ್ಳ chella (Kannada names) ... find their entries in a booklet called Latin and Kannada names of indigenous and medicinal plants of Mysore by S G Narsimhachar [PDF available at the link] ... though would not be displaying them in the front list - it is found in a more descriptive name - ಹೊಳೆದಚಳ್ಳ holedachalla.
ಚಳ್ಳ challa ... is the Tulu name, found mentioned in one literature Medicinal plants of Tulunadu [PDF] of Shodhaganga database.
Thanks once again, ...

Right in front of our house here there is a small park. A Lagerstroemia speciosa (JARUL) is visible from the balcony of our house. Yesterday I saw a number of Alexandrine Parakeet enjoying the fruits of this tree.
Attaching a collage of that event.

Attaching a collage of Alexandrine parakeet feeding on the fruits of Lagerstroemia speciosa (JARUL)
Alexandrian parakeet on Lagerstoemia

Lagerstroemia ¿ species ?  
Dear friends,
Here, the fruits are in huge clusters. The flowers resemble those of L. speciosa, however are smaller and are in large clusters, and normally are in mix of white and purple colours. Please help ID. 
looks close to Putranjiva?
But the fruits in first pic and flowers in second pic are of Lagerstroemia. Both pics are of same tree.
Sorry, I meant to reply on your other Lagerstroemia post. By mistake replied on this one.  
Oh, ok, thanks, ...
But those fruits are certainly not of Putranjiva, I am sure.
its not putranjiva. its a prolifically pollinated flowered inflorescence. hence this cascading fruit bunch. its lagerstomia.
so to see the lagerstomia flower pollinated i one would need to go to virajpet, coorg. nice to remember
forgot to say the flowers are seen. lagerstomia
I think two different species.
First may be Lagerstroemia microcarpa Wight, while 2nd may be what you stated. 

Both pictures are of Lagerstoemia speciosa,
I could not find any drooping inflorescence in Lagerstroemia speciosa as per images herein.
On further scrutiny, I think ... may be right.
But what could be the reason for such drooping inflorescence.
Thank you very much ... I think the inflorescence starts drooping when fruits develop and mature.

I maintain all lockdown precautions but take short evening walks.
Today I captured the attached photo on my mobile phone.
One friend jokingly commented that the 'corona' was 'striking' and the corolla also looked like corona and we laughed.
The resemblence to the virus is so uncanny I thought I'd share the picture of the bloom with you.

This is called wide angle macrophotography, made possible by mobile phone sensors.
The conventional macro lens allows us to take excellent close up photo's but depth of field is restricted. Here we get a much greater DOF not possible with conventional macro lens.
..., now even specialized wide angle macro lenses are available at reasonable price from Chinese manufacturers.

Looks like Lagerstroemia sp. Could be Lagerstroemia speciosa !

Most likely this may be Lagerstroemia speciosa (L.) Pers. as per comparative images at Lagerstroemia

Lagerstroema flos reginae : 8 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (1) - 4 mb.
Kind friends of this group
Please inform if these are correctly identified.
Lagerstroema flos reginae
Why is colour of the younger sapling so much brighter than the grown up tree?

Also check for L.indica. Is the plant grown in the pot or a branch fixed to the soil?

Thank you for your help. The smaller plant is in a pot.
Larger tree has light flowers in my post 

It is very surprising. L.flos reginae is a tree. How such a small plant can flower ? Is it a grafted one. 
Yes sir, it looks as if its a grafted one; Once again the colour shade is so bright. Is that commonly observed?

Here I have not seen any grafted varieties. Only saplings raised from seeds are sold in the nursery. They take minimum of  2-4 years to flower.


Most likely this may be Lagerstroemia speciosa (L.) Pers. as per comparative images at Lagerstroemia
