Quick Overview:

The Red Hot™ Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle is a new variety that combines flowers in a powerful red with rich foliage that is deep burgundy. This colorful combination lasts for months, since the foliage holds its color and never fades. The flowers too last from June to the first frost, so for long-lasting and vibrant colors, this tree cannot be beaten

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)
