Black Diamond® Blush™ Crape Myrtle
Blushing-pink Blooms Light Up BLACK Foliage!
The Blush Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia ‘Diamond Blush’) is a striking new introduction from the Black Diamond line of crape myrtles. Blush makes a fantastic statement wherever you put it in your landscape.
It is a winner as a foundation plant but if you want something really different for a fence border or flowering hedge, this really fits the bill. Want to make a statement on your patio? Try it in a large container for an instant eye-catcher.
The blushing-pink blooms float against the black foliage. They are dainty ruffled beauties that cover the tree in soft drifts of color. Blush Crape Myrtle blooms spring through fall. Since it only grows to 12 feet tall and 8 feet wide it is perfect for smaller gardens. It handles pruning like a champ and can be kept much shorter if you want. It makes a gorgeous 3 foot flowering hedge, especially in the south.
Blush is more resistant to powdery mildew than many other crapes, and it is relatively drought tolerant once it is established.
This is a simple shrub to grow – beautiful, healthy and a statement piece. Order yours today.
