Dynamite Crape Myrtle
Lagerstroemia indica 'Whit II'

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



Special Attributes

The Dynamite Crape Myrtle tree produces an abundance of large, absolutely TRUE-red flower clusters for up to 100 days during summer in your landscape. The dark green leaves turn to orange and red in fall and contrast nicely with the exfoliating, grey-brown bark.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 15-20 feet tall depending on pruning, and 10-15 feet or so wide, Dynamite Crape Myrtle is ideal for use as a specimen tree, in groupings or as a hedge in landscape borders. Very nice to frame in 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!

Spacing:  8-10' for solid hedge; 16' 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.
