Bright Red Blooms – Red Rocket Crape Myrtle is the queen of crape myrtles, with its brilliant red flowers produced all summer long. As its name suggests it grows like a rocket, shooting up as much as 5 feet a year, to quickly form a beautiful screen or specimen in your garden. It loves full sun, is drought-resistant, will thrive in most soils and needs little or no pruning. It can be planted as a gorgeous individual specimen in a smaller garden, among other flowering shrubs or as a spectacular screen for privacy.

• Rapid growth rate – 5 feet a year
• Brilliant red flowers to brighten any garden
• Ideal small specimen tree for a sunny lawn
• Perfect colorful screening plant
• Disease-free foliage

For drought tolerance and the ability to grow in poor, compacted soil, this tree takes some beating. At 15 feet tall it is the perfect size for every garden – as a lawn specimen in a small one or a background shrub in a large one. It also makes a great screen a couple of stories high in narrower urban spaces.
