The Best Red™ Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle is a new variety of this ever-popular plant that features rich red flowers from early summer to the first frost, combined with deep red-black foliage that always looks clean and fresh. Now, a Crape Myrtle that isn’t plain green when not in flower – instead, rich foliage color to brighten your garden from early spring right up to leaf-drop. Growing no more than 12 feet tall, even if untrimmed, this tough, reliable plant fits into smaller gardens or smaller spaces with ease, and never takes over. Use it as a specimen plant, as a dense, colorful screen, or mixed with other shrubs in your garden beds and around the house.

  • Rich, red-black foliage all season
  • Bright, true-red blooms from early summer into fall
  • Moderate 12-foot maximum height for smaller spaces
  • Tough, drought-resistant and easy to grow
  • Disease resistant too, so always looks great

The Best Red™ Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle grows best in full sun, for the most flowers and the richest foliage color. Plant it in any well-drained soil, from sand to clay, and it even thrives in poor, rocky soil. It establishes quickly in the first year, and from then on it is drought-resistant and disease-free. In zone 6 the upper growth may die back in winter, but plants will re-sprout from the base and flower freely, although plants will then only grow between 3 and 5 feet tall.
