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.

Try avoiding orders during summer

Plants came in really quickly, gave 4 stars because the box wasn’t long enough and bent the top of one of the trees. Two top small branches were damaged but the tree overall looks good and some flowering is showing. Had ordered a Japanese maple as well. Next time I order from this online nursery or any other will try to order during early spring because the leaves on the trees were drying or but that’s because of how hot it’s been. If the tress grow healthy will definitely order from here again.
