Hello all
i think it is not L. tomentosa,
it is resembling more to L. indica. the leaves will be alternate in
this case, other wise it is opposite in genus Lagestroemia.the flowers
can be pink or white in L. indica.

Lagerstroemia indica L. Syst. ed. 10, 1076, 1759; Cl. in Hook.f., Fl.
Brit. Ind. 2: 575, 1879; Cooke, Fl. Pres. Bombay 1: 546, 1958 (Repr.);
Almeida, Fl. Mah. 2: 284, 1998; Singh et al, Fl. Mah. St. 2: 39, 2001.
Synonyms: Vilaga globosa Gaertn., Fruct. 2: 246, 1791.
Common names: Pride of India, Crupe-Myrtle, Chinai Mendhi.
