The Shell Pink™ Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle combines vibrant dark-red leaves with brilliant coral pink flowers to bring you a great colorful addition to your garden. It grows to 10 or 12 feet tall, and it can be grown as a large shrub or as a small, multi-stem tree. Use it as an informal screen too, where it will be colorful right from the beginning of spring to the last frost. It will grow in poor soil, and its special breeding means that the foliage is always clean, and free of the unsightly powdery mildew that plagues older varieties of crape myrtles.

  • Continuous blooming of vibrant coral pink flowers
  • Bold dark red foliage from spring to frost
  • Beautiful small tree or large shrub for any sunny spot
  • Foliage is always clean and disease resistant
  • Grows well even in poor soil, urban settings, and near the sea

Plant your Shell Pink™ Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle in full sun and in well-drained soil. Once established it will thrive in poor soil, and in those hot, dry spots where other plants fail. It will even grow in zone 6, where it will reliably re-sprout from the base in spring, and flower prolifically. It grows well even in harsh urban conditions, and near the sea, in sandy soil, with good resistance to salt-spray. One annual trimming in late winter or early spring will keep it compact and bushy, or if you want a taller plant, leave it to grow, removing weaker lower branches to develop a short trunk.
