The Crimson Red™ Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle is a new variety of crape myrtle that combines vibrant flowers with intense foliage color to bring you a two-in-one tree that adds more to your garden than any other single plant available can do. From early summer until the arrival of the first frost, you will be treated to a continuous display of rich red flowers, in large, showy clusters at the end of every branch, set off against foliage that is consistently red-black from spring to leaf drop. All this on a tree that will grow no more than 12 feet tall, and that can be kept significantly smaller with simple annual pruning. Grow it as a specimen, in a row as a screen, or with other shrubs for a stunning display all summer.

  • Reliable all-season rich red foliage
  • Vibrant, fiery-red flowers from summer to fall
  • Ideal small tree for smaller garden spaces
  • Grows well even in poor-soil, drought and urban conditions
  • Free of unsightly powdery mildew and other diseases

The Crimson Red™ Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle should be grown in full sun for maximum flowering and the richest leaf color. It will thrive in almost any soil, just so long as it is well-drained. Water regularly during the first season, but after that this tree will thrive in drought and hot, humid weather. It is hardy into zone 6, where it will reliably re-sprout from the base, even if the upper branches are killed in winter. Because it flowers on new shoots, you can be sure of profuse flowering. This tree is reliably free of powdery mildew and other common diseases, so it always looks perfect all year round.
