Unlike any other Crape myrtle we've seen, the flowers of the Dynamite Crape Myrtle are absolutely TRUE RED - no pink tones at all! The large and abundant dark red flowers will provide up to 100 days of explosive color during summer. But the color show doesn't stop after the summer flowers. The handsome dark green leaves of Dynamite turn to vibrant shades of orange and red in fall contrasting nicely with the exfoliating, grey-brown bark that provides interest during winter. An excellent flowering tree that will set your yard on fire during summer!
