Enduring Red Crape Myrtle is a versatile, medium-sized shrub, reaching heights of 4-5 feet with a similar spread, making it an excellent choice for various garden applications, including hedges, borders, or specimen plantings. It thrives in USDA hardiness zones 7-9 and prefers well-drained, slightly acidic soil and full sun exposure. This particular crape myrtle variety is noted for its vigorous growth, attractive bark, and resistance to diseases, such as powdery mildew and leaf spot, ensuring a healthy and beautiful plant throughout the year.
One of the most striking features of the Enduring Red Crape Myrtle is its vibrant, red flowers. The large, conical clusters of blooms appear in mid to late summer and last for several weeks, creating a dazzling display of color in the landscape.

As the season progresses, the foliage transforms once more, taking on a brilliant display of red and orange in the fall. The peeling, cinnamon-colored bark adds another layer of textural interest, making the Enduring Red Crape Myrtle a visually appealing choice throughout the year.
