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

The red black flower clusters will appear in early spring.
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 myrtles are very drought tolerant.
Black Diamond® will make a unique impact as an accent plant or group 3-5 for a magnificent mass planting or flowering hedge. Growing approximately 10-12 feet tall and 8 foot wide, the flowering shrub is a perfect fit for most gardens.
Will benefit from the addition of a slow release fertilizer at the top of the root ball once a year. This will help with flowering. The Black Diamond series is pest and disease resistant.
These trees are perfect planted lining a driveway or fence. Grow across the United States in USDA growing zones 6-9.
