Special Attributes

Delta Eclipse Crape Myrtle is an exciting new hybrid with deep maroon leaves that hold their color all season long. During summer an abundance of bright lavender flowers come that contrast beautifully with the dark foliage. Delta Eclipse is a mid-size crape myrtle with a fast rate of growth to 8 to 12 feet in height and 4 to 6 feet wide - the perfect size flowering tree for smaller garden spaces.




Landscape & Garden Uses

With an upright habit 8 to 12 feet tall and 4 to 6 feet wide, the Delta Eclipse Crape Myrtle is an ideal selection for smaller garden spaces and containers. It can be grown as a shrub or lower branches can be removed to form a very attractive small tree, making it an excellent choice for use as a specimen or accent in sunny home foundation plantings or landscape borders. Also makes a very colorful hedge and is spectacular in groupings. Whether planted as a specimen or in groupings, this is one plant that is sure to stand out in the landscape!

Suggested Spacing:  4-5 feet apart for solid hedge; 10 feet or more apart for space between trees




Cultural Preferences

Delta Eclipse Crape Myrtle is very easy to grow. It is not picky about soil type provided the soil is well-drained. A moist but well-drained soil of average fertility is preferred. Full sun is preferred and results in heavier flower production. Light shade is tolerated but flowering will be diminished in more shade. Has shown excellent resistance to powdery mildew and is quite drought tolerant when established.
