Deep Cherry Red Blooms for Months!

The Dynamite® Crape Myrtle PP10296, Lagerstroemia indica 'Whit II,' will bring an explosion of color to your landscape!

This offering from Carl Whitcomb displays deep, cherry red blooms that emerge in large clusters from mid-summer until frost.  After a summer of blooms, you will see the leaves turn a bright orange, giving you great fall color.

The Dynamite®  Crape Myrtle is adaptable to different soil types, and is resistant to powdery mildew.  It does best in warm, full sun areas, making a great choice in Southern gardens.  The Dynamite® Crape Myrtle is ideally suited for formal or informal design in the home landscape, street plantings and community plantings.

Dynamite 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, and this plant is easy to grow, and if it is used for hedges, plant them 4 to 5 feet apart.

* Deep red blooms
* Powdery mildew resistant
* Exciting fall color
