Crapemyrtle 'Red Rocket®' PP11342
Spikes of cherry-red flowers cover this upright, multi-stemmed shrub all summer. New leaves are crimson but quickly turn to dark green. This moderate grower reaches 10 to 15 feet tall and 8 to 12 feet wide. Use as an accent, in containers, or massed in borders.
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. Upright grower 15 to 20 ft. tall and wide.
Summer Flowering Care Information
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.
