Dig into the details


The Dynamite Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica 'Whit II'), known for its vibrant red flowers and attractive, peeling bark, is a popular deciduous tree for landscapes and gardens. This medium-sized tree offers an extended season of interest, with impressive summer blooms, colorful autumn foliage, and intriguing winter bark.

The Overall Plant

Dynamite Crape Myrtle is a versatile and adaptable tree that can grow to heights of 15-20 feet, with a spread of 10-15 feet. Hardy in USDA zones 6-9, this sun-loving tree thrives in well-drained soil, tolerating a variety of soil types. It is relatively low-maintenance and drought-tolerant once established. Dynamite Crape Myrtle is often used as a specimen tree, in small groupings, or as an accent in mixed borders, providing a striking focal point in the landscape.

The Flowers

The standout feature of the Dynamite Crape Myrtle is its abundant, vibrant red flowers. Blooming from midsummer to early fall, these large clusters of crinkled, crepe-paper-like flowers create a stunning display, drawing attention from passersby. The bright red flowers contrast beautifully with the dark green foliage, making the Dynamite Crape Myrtle a popular choice for adding a pop of color to landscapes and gardens.

The Fruit

After the flowering season, the Dynamite Crape Myrtle produces small, round, capsule-like fruit that starts as green and matures to a dark brown. The fruit persists on the tree throughout the winter months, providing visual interest even after the leaves have fallen. Although not particularly ornamental, the fruit serves as a food source for birds, adding ecological value to the plant.
