The Blush™ Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle is a wonderful upright shrub to 10 or 12 feet tall, with rich foliage that is dark red to purple-black, holding its color all summer long. From June to September it is smothered with big trusses of dramatic light pink blooms that glow with light against the dark leaves. It is perfect as a lawn specimen, at the back of shrub beds, around the house or as a screen or informal hedge. This easily-grown shrub combines the benefits of all-season foliage with months of vibrant blooms.

  • Rich red-purple foliage never fades
  • Glowing pink blooms from June to September
  • Great fall colors too, of red and orange
  • Compact upright growth to a little over 10 feet
  • Thrives in sunshine, heat and dryness

Plant the Blush™ Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle in full sun, where its colors will be the strongest and its flowers the most prolific. Any well-drained soil is suitable, including dry and sandy soils, and poor urban soils too. It is disease resistant, so the leaves are always fresh and glossy. Insects are not normally problems and deer usually leave it alone. Fast-growing, it can be trimmed in late winter to keep it more compact, if you wish. Removing the finished flower clusters will give the most blooms later.
