Black Diamond® Lavender Lace™ Crape Myrtle
Sexy dark foliage from spring to frost!
Some divas need stage names. Not this one. This is a sexy name for a sexy plant – Black Diamond Lavender Lace Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica ‘CS2012-12’) – and she is as unforgettable as her name.
From her dark purple, almost black foliage that pops out in the spring to the lavender/pink ruffled flowers that she flounces like a can-can dancer’s petticoats, this plant has created quite a stir since it was first introduced several months ago.
The show starts in the spring with a cool flush of black leaves. This is followed quickly by masses of beautiful lavender/pink flowers that bloom continuously through the hottest part of summer without missing a beat right up until the first frost.
Black Diamond Lavender Lace is drought tolerant and disease resistant. This is the perfect beginner’s shrub, too. She is completely easy to care for and requires little maintenance – a yearly trim in early winter and a little spring fertilizer is all she needs.
She is also the perfect size for any garden. Neither too big nor too small, it’s a great small tree for under your power lines.
This dark beauty is new to the market as of 2016. Be the first in your neighborhood to own it and be ready for the accolades!
