About

The Cherry Dazzle Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia 'Cherry Dazzle') is a popular and showy deciduous shrub that captivates with its vibrant red flowers and compact size. This dwarf variety of crape myrtle is known for its adaptability and low-maintenance nature, making it a favorite among gardeners and landscapers.

The Overall Plant

Cherry Dazzle Crape Myrtle is a compact shrub that typically grows to a height and spread of 3-5 feet, making it an ideal choice for small gardens, borders, or container planting. It is well-suited for USDA hardiness zones 6-9 and requires well-drained soil and full sun exposure for optimal growth. This drought-tolerant plant is also resistant to mildew, a common issue among other crape myrtle varieties, further enhancing its low-maintenance appeal.

The foliage of Cherry Dazzle Crape Myrtle is a rich green color that transitions to a vibrant orange-red in the fall, providing additional seasonal interest. Its small size, coupled with its striking foliage and floral display, makes it a versatile and attractive addition to any landscape design.

 

The Flowers

The most appealing features of the Cherry Dazzle Crape Myrtle is its stunning floral display. Throughout the summer, the shrub produces abundant clusters of vibrant, cherry-red flowers that create a dramatic contrast against the lush green foliage. The flowers are characterized by their ruffled, crepe-paper-like petals and can last for several months, providing a long-lasting burst of color in the garden.

The Cherry Dazzle Crape Myrtle's profuse flowering not only adds visual appeal but also attracts pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, contributing to a lively and biodiverse garden.

The Fruit

After the flowering period, Cherry Dazzle Crape Myrtle produces small, inconspicuous seed capsules that are not particularly ornamental. However, these capsules do not detract from the overall beauty of the plant and can be easily removed if desired.
