Orange skyward

More fall foliage in Hong Kong with the bright orange leaves of the Queen Crepe Myrtle (lagerstroemia speciosa).

This particular individual grows inside the campus of the University of Hong Kong. Despite its modest size, no more than 15 feet, it certainly knows how to put on a show.

The Queen Crepe Myrtle is one of the most spectacular species to populate Hong Kong. Not only does it offer some sombre colours during fall and winter, but its luscious and flamboyant purple flowers during the spring and summer are an absolute spectacle.
