Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

No Chemicals

It's Easy to Plant your Cherry Razzle Dazzle Crape Myrtle

Specific Directions for Cherry Razzle Dazzle Crape Myrtle

Your Cherry Razzle Dazzle Crape Myrtle will thrive in an area the receives full to partial sunlight. For a hedge plant your Crape Myrtles about 3 feet apart.

Cherry Razzle Dazzle Crape Myrtles will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Allow to the soil to dry to the touch about two inches down between each watering. Once the soil is dry, give your Crape Myrtle a deep watering.

Every Spring fertilize your Cherry Razzle Dazzle Crape Myrtle with an acidic fertilizer and prepare for the show. Each summer beautiful red blossoms emerge and cover the whole shrub!


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cherry Razzle Dazzle Crape Myrtle.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Cherry Razzle Dazzle Crape Myrtle gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Cherry Razzle Dazzle Crape Myrtle again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

the 2 dazzle i bought are doing great. planted them last fall and both are nice and full. no blooms yet but im sure it will soon.

By: Maureen O'Donnell
Planted this in late spring and there's not much going on in terms of growth or blooms. it has been an exceptionally dry and hot summer. I'm hoping by next summer there will be something to look at.

By: Lucille
Received and planted in April,2013 slow start but now in full bloom, truly surprised it bloomed within three months, simply beautiful and causing many inquiries as to where it came from, great dwarf size this yr.

By: Joanne Jacobs
Spectacular little bush with gorgeous "true red" blooms. Bought one years ago and may buy more in the fall. Nice accent bush, colorful too in autumn. Buy one. You won't be sorry.

By: Ken Sherber
It's a little difficult to review this purchase, as what I received was a 3-foot stick with a few leaves on it. I purchased 15 different trees and shrubs from this company this year to replace the loss of my entire backyard in Hurricane Sandy last fall, and this was the only disappointing plant. Now, several months later, is has bloomed a bit, but scarcely grown at all. It certainly does not look as though it's going to mature into anything close to what is pictured on the site, but we'll see next year.

By: Jor From Jersey
WoW what a beatiful shrub. I purchased it last August and three weeks later my tenants child stepped on it while running and broke the two largest branches off. I had one small branch left and didn't think it would make through the winter. In the spring it did nothing and I was going to pull it out. I left it and it bloomed and grew it now has about five branches and is about a foot and a half tall and full of beautiful, bright flowers with yellow centers and hasn't stopped blooming and is supposed to bloom all summer. I am so glad I got this plant. The leaves are a dark rich green. We love it.

is it necessary to dead head for continued summer blooming?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2014
Best Answer: This will be the first year my Crape Myrtle has a significant amount of blooms so I don't have any experience with dead heading yet. I did a little reading and it was suggested that you don't dead head these plants because they are a woody bush. Good Luck!!

Can razzle dazzle crepe myrtle thrive in soggy clay soil?
A shopper on Jun 23, 2014
Best Answer: It would be best to ask a professional gardener, but I would say ' no'. I planted my Razzle Dazzle crepe in a large pot with potting soil, rather than in the ground and it bloomed the first year of purchase and getting ready to bloom again this year.

Can cherry razzle dazzle crepe myrtle be planted on a terrace in a container ? If so, what size container should a one gallon and 3 gallon be planted in so that it will not have to be replanted as it grows to full size?
Nancy R on Jun 14, 2014
Best Answer: The Cherry Dazzle Crape Myrtle will do great in a container. A 10 gallon size or larger would suffice.
