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.

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.

I bought 2 last Fall. I bought the smaller size and they are both 3X bigger now. They bloomed early summer and are blooming intermittently now. Very pretty.

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.

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

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

Planted 2 of them last Spring (2014). At first they went through soil shock and some of the leaves started to turn brown. I think the deer were so hungry they were eating it too. They also went through a harsh NJ winter with minus degrees at times and ice/snow storms. Thought it was the end of these beautiful shrubs :( but to my surprise they were sprouting new, bigger leaves at the base. So happy! Hopefully they will continue to thrive -- can't wait to see when the flowers.

I am going into season 4 with this plant. It's a slow start and took a couple seasons to bloom. It doesn't do a lot until late summer or fall, but it's gotten hardier each year. Last season was great and have high hopes for this year and what it will do.

Be patient!! I thought it was dead after my first season since there was no new growth, but then the leaf buds started to come in late spring. I have it planted in full sun and it is a happy camper.

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!!
I purchased 2 of these last year from your company, in early spring so they would have a full summer to grow. According to your chart it should do well in my zone, southern Ohio (Cincinnati). The plant did have some good growth last year, nothing outstanding though. I am starting to get worried, its now late April, and both plants look dead. When should I start to be worried? Or does this just come out of hibernation later then others?
pete c on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This shrub tends to come out of hibernation quite a bit later than other shrubs. That is why it is seldom offered in fund raising plant sales here in central to northern New Jersey. Bare branches just do not sell.
Does this plant lose it's leaves in the winter in zone 10?
Cindy C on Jun 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, they loose some color, but don't fall off
Are you sure this won't adapt to zone 10?
Bonnie P on Aug 5, 2015
Thanks for asking about this. Yes it will grow inzone 6-10 and we have corrected it on our site. If you have further questions please contact our sales department at 1 888 504-2001. Thank you
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.
Can razzle dazzle crepe myrtle thrive in soggy clay soil?
A shopper on Jun 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Clay soil is not a problem, but poor drainage can be a killer. Since it is a relatively small shrub it is usually not too difficult to improve the soil by adding organic matter. They really are very attractive plants.
How many hours of sun is considered full sun?
patricia a on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My Crape Myrtle is in full sun approximately 8 hrs. per day and they are thriving. Love the beautiful color of the Cherry Razzle Dazzle.
Is 7 hours of sun enough for this plant?
patricia a on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Full sun is anything more than 6 hours. Partial sun is less than 6 hours. This shrub is rated to grow in partial to full sun. An aside: the shrub is rated up to Zone 6. I live in zone 5b and decided to take a chance. After the last extremely cold winter and snow I thought the plant was a gonna. About three weeks ago the shrub began to grow with minor winter damage??
Q When do they need to be planted???
A shopper on Jul 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I got my Cherry Razzle Dazzle Crape Myrtles the beginning of July. I planted them right away, and now at the end of July I'm seeing blooms. I used the planting kit that comes with Crape and everything is going as expected. I also got a Red Rocket Crape Myrtle Tree at the same time and it's blooming also.Thanks Fast Growing Trees.

do you prune crape myrtles ?
mary b on Jun 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Cherry Razzle Dazzle is a dwarf, mounding variety and I have mine in a pot on the patio. Since fullness and shrubbiness are the features I want, I I don't prune it except for a few branch tip ends from freeze damage. It's doing beautifully.
Is 7 hours of sun enough for this plant?
patricia a on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 7 hours should be enough for this crape myrtle to grow and be healthy. Even more sun will produce even more blooms. Be sure that the plant gets enough deep thorough water the first year after it is planted. After the first year, a few deep waterings through the spring and summer season will keep it growing.
is this crepe deer resistant?
A shopper on Sep 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Crape Myrtles are seldom severely damaged by deer. However, if deer are starving they will eat anything.

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most Trees are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
