Chosen as one of the "2002 Arkansas Select Plants"

The Dynamite®Crapemyrtle has a blast of true dark dark brick  red blooms for you to enjoy. When they first start opening they show a little white giving the appearance of crepe paper next they will explode into the beautiful red color and then as they fade  will turn a little pink. This is another one of Dr. Carl Whitcomb’s beautiful creations displaying true red in large clusters from mid-summer till fall. It is the first true red tree form crape myrtle. In the fall the leaves give a nice fall color. It is a deciduous tree resistant to powdery mildew and loves full sun. (Clouds or shade will reduce red intensity of the color )The new growth is crimson, then green. The bark is light brown to beige . It has an upright shape. It doesn't have an umbrella shaped so it doesn't consume as much air space.  The Dynamite® is easy to grow and would make stunning addition to any landscape.
