The Red Hot™ Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle is a new variety that combined 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. It grows rapidly into a small tree 12 to 15 feet tall, or with simple annual trimming it can be kept smaller. Grow it as a colorful specimen tree or large shrub, as a screen or hedge, or as background planting in your garden. Wherever you grow it you will love the vigor and easy ways of this wonderful plant.

  • Bright red flowers from June into fall
  • Rich red-black foliage that never fades
  • Stunning small tree for hot, dry locations
  • Resistant to diseases, so always beautiful
  • Tolerant of poor soil and urban conditions

The Red Hot™ Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle is completely hardy in zones 7, 8 and 9. It will also grow in zone 6, reliably re-sprouting after the winter. Everywhere it will flower profusely, and the foliage is always beautiful, never suffering from the disfiguring diseases common in older crape myrtles. It grows best in full sun, and it is tolerant of all types of soil, doing well in any well-drained ground. Once established it is very drought resistant, and it needs no special attention to thrive almost anywhere.
