Siren Red Crape Myrtle
The Siren Red® Crape Myrtle PP14975 (Lagerstroemia indica 'Whit VII') has dark red flowers, darker than any other crape myrtle so far.
This introduction by Dr. Carl Whitcomb, produces new leaves that emerge a deep burgundy in the spring, quickly changing to dark green.
The deep red flowers (sometimes described as "oxblood red") start in late spring and bloom all summer long. The Siren Red® Crape Myrtle is ideally suited for formal or informal design in the home landscape, street plantings and community plantings.
It can be planted as a specimen or in groups, and looks attractive when underplanted with a ground cover.
Crape myrtle leaves are oval and 1 to 2 inches long; they are bronze-colored when they first unfold in the spring and become yellow, orange or red before falling late in autumn.
Crape Myrtles are easy to grow and if they are used for hedges, plant them 4 to 5 feet apart.
