RED SUMMER BLOOMS & UNIQUE BURGUNDY FOLIAGE MAKE THIS TREE A SHOW STOPPER!

Give your garden a brilliant boost with the vivid beauty that only the Black Diamond® Best Red™ Crape Myrtle tree can offer.

The striking jet black foliage of the Black Diamond plant contrasts beautifully with the boldly colored red blooms, making it a beautiful center piece in the garden or landscape.

The red flower clusters will appear in early spring and last until the winter months.

Black Diamond Crape Myrtle Best Red will make a unique impact as an accent plant or group 3-5 for a magnificent mass planting or flowering hedge. Growing approximately 10 to 12 feet tall and 8 feet wide, the flowering shrub is a perfect fit for most gardens. It stays nice and compact as a small tree.

Black Diamond Crape Myrtle Care

This brilliant flowering shrub will bloom all summer up until fall’s first frost. For best results, grow in full sun to partial shade with well-amended soil; once established, Black Diamond Crape Myrtle trees are very drought tolerant.

Will benefit from the addition of a slow-release fertilizer at the top of the root ball once a year. This will help with continuous flowering. The Black Diamond series is pest, disease, and deer resistant, as well as drought-tolerant and mildew resistant.

These deciduous trees are perfect for lining a driveway or fence. Grow across the United States in USDA growing zones 6-9.

Excellent products and services

Before placing PO for expensive diamond crape myrtle, I was a little nervous to order live plants on line. I worried about quality of plants, the way of shipping and services. It turned out as an excellent experience. The plants are absolutely top quality. The packing is so thoughtful. One of them bloomed on my wife’s birthday. We are so happy with the purchase.

My plants were well packaged and were delivered very quickly. There was no damage to the plants from shipping, and they were packed so we didn't have to plant them immediately. Very impressed.

Received the crape myrtle and immediaetly planted it as per the enclosed instructions. The plant arrived healthy looking and was carefully packaged. I went ahead and ordered another one. Hopefully come Spring it will still look great as it is starting to get cold in PA
