Dynamite CrapemyrtleLagerstroemia indica 'Whit II' pp# 10296
The crapemyrtle is often referred to as the "lilac of the South." But with new cold-hardy cultivars, more areas of the country can now enjoy their brilliant color and year-round beauty. This stunning tree is renowned for its showy flowers, beautiful bark, fast growth and tolerance of soil conditions. The petals are wrinkled like crepe paper, adding to the appeal of this popular tree. The dynamite variety is the first true red tree form crapemyrtle, producing cherry red flowers even in full sun and hot conditions.
