USDA Cold Hardiness Zones: 6a-9b  Find Your Zone

Special Attributes

Developed by the Michael Dirr Breeding Program at the University of Georgia, 'Strawberry Dazzle' is one of the famous dwarf Crape Myrtle from the Dazzle Series. One of the most stunningly colorful summer-flowering shrubs in our gardens, the deep green foliage of Strawberry Dazzle becomes literally smothered with striking neon-red flower clusters in summer. Truly a sight to behold. 

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 3 to 4 feet tall and wide, Strawberry Dazzle Crape is an ideal selection as an accent or specimen in smaller garden spaces or as a stand alone in containers, which can conveniently be brought indoors for overwintering by those of you who garden north of USDA Cold Hardiness Zone 6a. In larger landscape spaces Strawberry Dazzle is outstanding in small to large groupings or as a colorful hedge.

Spacing Recommendations:  3' for hedges, 6'+ for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

Dazzle Dwarf Crape Myrtles are exceptionally easy to grow and maintain when planted right and in the right spot. They're not too picky about soil type however prefer a well-drained soil and as much sun as you can give them. They are very low maintenance requiring no pruning to keep a nice shape. That said, spent flowers can be removed to encourage a possible second flush of flowers. A light pruning before leaves emerge in early spring can help to maintain a more dense shrub. When established, plants are quite drought tolerant; only requiring supplemental water during prolonged dry periods during summer. As with all other crape myrtle, deer won't touch the Dazzles. You'll find more tips under the Planting and Care tabs on this page.
