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.

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.
December 31, 2012
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

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.

Grew and bloomed exactly as described
We love this dwarf crape myrtle - looking forward to a full blooming season next year! In May 2015 we received 4 small, heavily pruned 1 ft plants, just as FGT describes its shipping protocol on the website. All 4 of them thrived despite our drought summer here in Portland, Oregon and began blooming in August. So we got lovely dense blooms for August-September on plants that at least doubled in size.

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.

Very good pictures and description of characteristics. Should clarify state if trees or shrubs are evergreen or deciduous.

Wanted something that had a long blooming period like my regular myrtles. These will add color next to the house to where a regular crape myrtle would hide the house because of the height

Very happy with this dwarf crape myrtle. The blooms were as pictured. Very happy with this and citronella. Hopefully, the Dwarf Hinoki Cypress is exactly as the one I had in Maryland. I was very pleased with the foliage.

I want to add some color to the front yard close to the front entrance. Limited space with partial shade. Love the color. Can't wait to see this little lady do her thing. THANKS!
Joe P on Mar 8, 2016
It will fill an open space in our yard and its big but not too big. Most importantly, it is very colorful
Marc S on Mar 7, 2016
The size of the plant at 3-5 ft and color of blooms as well as it is compact, giving more privacy where needed.

I have seen these trees throughout my neighborhood last summer and could not get over how vibrant they were all summer long in Northwest Florida. I had to get some for my yard too!
Angela J on Feb 23, 2016
I might regret this decision since they go bare in the winter months, but I just loved the way I knew they would look lining the beds of the casita stucco wall, which is very low.

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!!
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.

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.
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.
Will this plant grow in Alberta?
Diane K on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The myrtles are doing well in North Texas. The website says it grows best in Zones 6-10 so not sure they could survive extreme cold.
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??
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.
Will it lose leaves in winter in zone 8/9?
Judy G on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am in zone 7b and the leaves did fall off. I cannot say if that will occur in your zone.
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.
Can you grow this plant in a pot?
Gloria C on May 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I don't know. I have three of them all in the ground.

Will trees and shrubs 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.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs 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.
