Special Attributes

Unlike any other Crape myrtle we've seen, the flowers of the Dynamite Crape Myrtle are absolutely TRUE RED - no pink tones at all! The large and abundant dark red flowers will provide up to 100 days of explosive color during summer. But the color show doesn't stop after the summer flowers. The handsome dark green leaves of Dynamite turn to vibrant shades of orange and red in fall contrasting nicely with the exfoliating, grey-brown bark that provides interest during winter. An excellent flowering tree that will set your yard on fire during summer!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 15 to 20 feet tall and 10 to 15 feet wide, the Dynamite Crape Myrtle is ideal for use as a specimen tree, in groupings, or as a hedge in landscape borders. Perfect to frame the corners of homes and other buildings. Whether planted as a specimen or in groupings, this is one crape myrtle that is sure to stand out in the landscape!

Suggested Spacing:  8 to 10 feet apart for solid hedge; 20 feet apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Dynamite Crape Myrtle is very easy to grow. It is not picky about soil type. A moist but well-drained soil of average fertility is preferred. Full sun (7 or more hours of sun per day) 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 drought tolerant when established.
