There is one thing everyone loves about summer: crape myrtles. Their magnificent pompoms of blooms are the cheerleaders of this carefree season. We're delighted to offer a variety that allows every gardener to bask in the beauty of summer, even if their yard isn't massive. The Enduring Summer™ Red Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia 'PIILAG B5') features voluptuous clusters of cranberry colored blooms that last, last, and last some more!
This petite beauty is perfect as an accent plant that will give your garden height. It will also thrive in a container door-side or on your patio. Add a pop of color to your pool deck with several Enduring Summer™ Red Crape Myrtles.
The Enduring Summer™ Red Crape Myrtle has foliage that emerges red and slowly matures to a shiny deep green, providing its bright flowers with a dense background.
Despite its size, this deciduous wonder erupts with a number of blooms that rival a full-size crepe myrtle's. Its clusters of fiery red blooms are charmingly frilly and last for months. If they begin to fade, feel free to give this plant a trim and it will likely rebloom.
When it comes to care, the Enduring Summer™ Red Crape Myrtle lets you enjoy some summer downtime. It naturally grows in an attractive rounded habit that looks pruned and professionally shaped. It also doesn't require excess water once established—it prefers well-drained medium moisture soil.
Where should you plant this perky pretty? Well, you'll want to plant it where it can bathe in sunlight and feel the warmth of summer. And its preference for full sun helps show off its radiant colors.
Did you know that crape myrtles are a hummingbird's favorite plant? This could be because they have plenty of blooms to choose from, but there is one thing that's for sure: They love this one. Other pollinators can't resist the Enduring Summer's poignant bloom, either!
