Lagerstroemia indica Red Rocket® is a beautiful crape myrtle with colorful foliage and numerous clusters of bright red blossoms. This small, vase-shaped tree's new leaves are red, and they fade to green for the summer. In the autumn, the foliage turns orange for an intense color boost before the leaves drop in the winter. It is disease resistant and will thrive in well-drained soil. The blossoms make two appearances for color in both the spring and in the autumn. This easy-to-grow compact tree reaches 20 to 30 feet in height and appreciates full sun and frequent water, but it can survive in a wide range of conditions. It can be grown in many climates, as it is hardy in USDA Zones 6 to 9.
