(unlabeled publication, received May 14, 2014): "In 2003, a yellow-leaf bud mutant of the Lagerstroemia indica cultivar Fenjing, was found by Dr. Ya Li. And then the mutant was reproduced using hardwood cuttings. All clones were continuously observed during 2004 through 2012. We found that the leaves color of the clones were stable. Therefore, the mutant was named 'Jinwei', which means golden myrtle in Chinese, as a cultivar. The cultivar 'Jinwei' with ovoid shape leaves, 2.4cm length, 1.8cm width, were red brown in middle of April, orange in May, yellow during June and July, light green in early August, light yellow during the middle of August through September and yellow in October. Shrubs, 1.3m height which is lower than its parent, flat branches, brown bark; 10cm spike length, 6cm spike width; pink petals." Breeders were Ya Li; Qing wang; Rutong Yang; Peng Wang; Lei Geng; Gan Yao.
