Black Diamond Blush Crape Myrtle
Blushing-pink Blooms Light Up BLACK Foliage!
If you think that pink and black is a color combo stuck in the 90’s, you need to take a look at Blush Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia ‘Diamond Blush’). This striking shrub is a new introduction from the Black Diamond line of crape myrtles and is a fantastic update of this fab color duo.
Blush makes a 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 about 10’ tall and 8’ 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’ flowering hedge, especially in the south.
Blush is more resistant to powdery mildew than many other crapes, but like most it is drought tolerant once it is established.
This is a simple shrub to grow – beautiful, healthy and a statement piece. Order yours today.
