The Double Dynamite Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica 'Whit II') is a stunning, deciduous shrub or small tree that captivates with its vibrant, long-lasting blooms. This versatile and low-maintenance plant is an excellent choice for those looking to add a showstopper to their garden or landscape.
Double Dynamite Crape Myrtle is a fast-growing plant that typically reaches a height of 10 to 12 feet and a width of 8 to 10 feet. It thrives in USDA hardiness zones 6 to 9, making it suitable for various climates. The plant is ideal for various landscape applications, such as specimen plantings, hedges, borders, or container plantings. It is also drought-tolerant and resistant to mildew, making it a valuable addition to gardens with diverse environmental challenges.
One of the standout features of the Double Dynamite Crape Myrtle is its spectacular, long-lasting blooms. The plant produces an abundance of vibrant, cherry-red flowers throughout the summer and into the fall. The large clusters of double, ruffled blooms create a striking visual display and attract pollinators like butterflies and hummingbirds.
For best flowering, the Double Dynamite Crape Myrtle should be planted in full sun. However, it can also tolerate light shade, but with a reduced number of blooms. The plant prefers well-draining soil but can adapt to various soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils.
In addition to its stunning flowers, the Double Dynamite Crape Myrtle also boasts attractive, dark green foliage. The leaves emerge with a reddish tint in the spring and mature to a deep, glossy green as the season progresses. In the fall, the foliage takes on shades of orange and red, adding even more color and interest to the landscape.
