If you are looking to add striking contrast to an elegant garden, look no further than the Black Diamond® Pure White™ Crape Myrtle.
The Black Diamond® Crape Myrtle variety is the first truly dark-leafed series of crape myrtles. The white blossoms of this Black Diamond® variety appear vibrantly bright white and offset the intense hues of the dark black leaves. The vibrant blooms reach their productivity peak during the early summer and fall months. You will begin to see the white blooms form in early spring. Great for fall color too! After the white flowering branches die back, the black foliage presents amazing contrast.
Known for being one of the smaller crape myrtles in a small tree/bush like form. The Black Diamond® variety is described as having an intermediate growth habit, tending to only reach 10 to 12 feet tall, a spread of 8 foot, and can be used as a specimen or in mass plantings.
These plants are very popular when lining driveways or fences, and can also be planted in a container on a deck or patio. These crape myrtles are drought tolerant, mildew resistant and low-maintenance.
