How does one distinguish between Lagerstroemia indica and L. speciosa?
Thanks.

L. indica is usually a shrub less than 4 m tall, whereas L. speciosa is a tree up to 8 m tall; leaves of former are almost sessile (petiole barely 0.5 mm), shorter rarely exceeding 7 cm whereas in latter petiole is 5-9 mm long and leaves 8-17 cm long; Hypanthium in former is 4-7 mm long not ribbed, in latter 8-10 mm long and 12-ribbed.; calyx erect in fruit in former, spreading in latter; petals are hardly 16-25 mm long in former, 32-35 mm long in latter; capsule 10-12 mm in diam in former, 17-20 mm in latter.
