A joyful, repeat blooming tree with a color for every season - meet the Lagerstroemia Red Rocket® crape myrtle. In the spring, the Lagerstroemia Red Rocket® crape myrtle 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. Lagerstroemia Red Rocket® crape myrtle is perfectly suited for hedges.

This Lagerstroemia Red Rocket® crape myrtle measures from 20 feet to 30 feet high and 10 feet to 15 feet wide. As the fast-growing Lagerstroemia Red Rocket® crape myrtle increases in height, its stems slightly flare; however, gardeners may choose to train Lagerstroemia Red Rocket® crape myrtle to a single trunk. With enough drainage and frequent watering, the hardy Lagerstroemia Red Rocket® crape myrtle 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.
