A joyful, repeat blooming tree with a color for every season - Meet the Red Rocket® Crape Myrtle. In the spring, the Red Rocket's leaves unfurl to create a vivid crimson display before transforming into a delightful green in the summer. Once early summer approaches, the tree's round, eye-popping red buds form impressive eight-inch clusters that remain for several weeks until the foliage turns into bold amber in the fall. Its perfectly suited for hedges and areas that receive a full amount of sunlight.

This Crepe Myrtle measures from 20 feet to 30 feet high and eight feet to 10 feet wide. As the fast-growing Red Rocket increases in height, its stems slightly flare; however, gardeners may choose to train it to a single trunk. With enough drainage and frequent watering, the hardy Red Rocket will thrive in many environments. This tree is resistant to disease, mildew and anthracnose. Those who want a low maintenance tree that makes a big statement will find what they are looking for in this Crepe Myrtle.
