Quick Overview:

The bright red blooms on this small growing (15′-20′) crape myrtle are in huge clusters. This beautiful crape myrtle specimen tree displays smooth tan bark, dark green foliage and a brilliant fiery orange fall color. Unforgettable as a flowering shrub or small growing flowering tree.

Description

Best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Does well in loamy, clay soils with good drainage. Benefits from a slow release fertilizer. Overly fertile soils tend to produce lush foliage growth at the expense of flowering with somewhat increased susceptibility to winter injury. Water roots deeply, particularly in dry spells, but avoid wetting the foliage.
