Quick Overview:

Ebony Flame Crape Myrtle that blooms in early summer with bright red flowers. It forms a small tree, with a dense, full shape. The foliage is a true black that contrasts well with the bright red flowers. It has excellent resistance to leaf spot and powdery mildew and is perfect to add a shot of summer color in a foundation planting or as an informal hedge.

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.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
