Description

Splash out your garden with the radiant color of the Red Crape Myrtle tree that adds an aesthetic touch to your summer landscape

The enchanting Red Crape Myrtle lights up your garden with its gorgeous clusters of bright red blooms all summer long. 

This sensational tree is renowned for its delicate peeling bark, showy flowers, tolerant soil conditions, and rapid growth. The petals of these flowering trees are crumpled like crepe paper, making them look more elegant.

The vibrant blooms of the red rocket crape myrtle make them attractive to the flutter of butterflies and the charm of hummingbirds throughout the summer days. The growth rate of these fantastic red flowers makes them most attractive for buyers. These trees can grow more than a foot in height within just a few weeks. Moreover, the mesmerizing red crape myrtle trees give out a 6" to 12" cluster of dynamite floors that can add curb appeal to your garden for several weeks and even months.

There are almost 50 Crape Myrtle trees, with several new varieties, available in the shades of red, white, pink, and purple

These are woody plants, including evergreen yet deciduous varieties, and the size ranges from dwarfs to 100-foot trees. The tree's gray bark exfoliates, showing a smooth, under bark ranging from brown to gray. As the tree grows, its branches will droop. Low branches are often thinned to show off the form and color of the trunk. Pruning can significantly reduce a plant's hardiness, so it is best to complete it by early August.

When young, it requires plenty of moisture. Once established, it can tolerate drought, is heat resistant, disease-resistant, and grows well in confined soil spaces. You can pinch new growth to increase the number of flowers and branches during the growing season. The soil needed for its development can be slightly acidic to alkaline (5.0 to 6.5 pH). 

The enchanting Red Rocket Crape Myrtle Tree is the true lover of heat and sun. Eight hours of sun per day and 45 minutes of watering using a soaker hose is ideal for the plant's root system. For best growth, use light fertilization; heavy fertilization can cause foliage production to reduce flower production. A light application of complete fertilizer after the leaves appears in early spring and summer is adequate. For the perfect deep red color, you're needed to do utmost care in the early days of growth.

In addition, you can design a great privacy screen for your home or patio by planting a curved bed of Red Crepe Myrtle shrubs in groups of 3, 5, or 7. You would fall for the Red Crepe Myrtle planted in groups as they would light your events and backyard overnight parties.
