Crape Myrtle – Red Rocket

Product Detail

Product Overview

The ‘Red Rocket’ Crape Myrtle is a classic myrtle with fantastic, bright red color. Growing up to 20 feet high and wide, this myrtle makes a great screening plant! Bonus, leaves turn bronze-red in fall. Deciduous. Somewhat drought tolerant once established.

Overview Care
The "Red Rocket" Crape Myrtle has clusters of ruby red, crepe papery flowers nearly cover the multi-stemmed shrub all summer long. The dark green foliage turns rich bronze-red in fall for great cool season interest. A stunning specimen or mass planting for late season color. Deciduous.

Follow a regular watering schedule the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Thin young trees in late winter to early spring, leaving 3-7 main trunks or canopy branches. On older trees, prune only to remove suckers that have emerged from main trunks or ground.
