Red Crepe Myrtle 4-5'

Red crepe myrtle is a beautiful, flowering, deciduous tree growing with multiple trunks and handsome, peeling bark. Its flowers are crinkled and have a crepe-like texture. They grow best in zones 6-8.

Planting in full sun will help ensure profuse blooming and a more intense red color. Drought-tolerant, its root system grows best in well-drained soil with good air circulation. Soil can be slightly alkaline to acidic (5.0 to 6.5 pH). Red crape myrtle proliferates and has a moderate to long life span.

The red crepe myrtle adds beauty and interest to the landscape year-round.

Beloved for its long flowering period and its striking crimson blossoms, the red crape myrtle's plentiful clusters of brilliant blooms appear on the tips of new branches early in summer and continue into the autumn months. Once the flowers die away, fruit remains in the form of small, green, capsule-like berries that eventually turn black or brown. These berries are available throughout the winter, attracting birds and adding interest. Red crape myrtle is also known for its shedding bark that exposes the attractive trunk and displays lovely shades of brown or gray. This plant typically develops several main stems which are more desirable than single-stem plants in the landscape, as they add charm and capture attention. In fall, leaves may be yellow, orange, and red.

Red crepe myrtle may be used in a variety of ways.
