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.

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.

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.
January 1, 2013
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.

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

Razzle dazzle crepe myrtle
We were a little concerned at first because of the shipping treatment, but after about a month the plant is really flourishing and blooming and simply doing great. Couldn't be happier!

Thank you so much for supplying this beautiful plant. Looking forward to its mature growth.

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 was looking for a flowering bush that would provide flowers the entire growing season. I currently have a crepe myrtle tree that is beautiful and wanted something similar for my garden that had red blooms. This plant is perfect!

Small and beautiful foliage when blooms are gone.

Wanted something completely different for our garden. It's compact and red so it's perfect for our garden. Also like that it adds color to the garden after the spring flowers have gone!

One of the few shrubs that can make it in zone 10. Looks nice, and I hear they are pretty resilient.

We needed something red close to the house and on a corner. This will balance a red weeping japanese maple on the other side of the house. I think this will be the perfect choice in zone 6.

Sandra B on Sep 8, 2016
Decades ago Redlands city planners chose crape myrtles to plant throughout this relatively small city. Crape myrtles are a good choice for longevity, durability, beauty, low maintenance. They've shown they can withstand drought conditions in California. They return beautiful blooms for just a little hand-watering everyday or deep watering every now and then, just as do succulents and cacti during extreme heat. I hope these 3 dwarf crape myrtle shrubs/bushes will do well covering an embankment.
SUSAN V on Sep 7, 2016
This is a rather ugly crape myrtle. I have several odd branches that have produced a different leaf size and shape and it just isn't at all attractive. I plan to do some serious pruning in the fall in an attempt to "help it along". It does produce very pretty flowers, but it is definitely a "charlie brown" christmas tree type of "orphan!
Carol W on Sep 5, 2016
Dwarf size. Beautiful color. Will flourish in coachella valley

Color and lower height than tree below so they will not over power each other in yard
Mary Ann L on Apr 19, 2016
In summer time I saw many people who live close to my home have Crape Myrtle in their front yard. The shrub is not very big and tall, but blooms beautiful flowers all over the top of the branch with various colors. It makes the yard look very nice, and the flowering time is quiet long. I have a flower bed in back yard. There is no much space can hold the Crape Myrtle with normal size, so I choose Cherry Dazzle® Dwarf Crape Myrtle. It smaller than those I have seen.
Julia R on Apr 17, 2016

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!!
Are you sure this won't adapt to zone 10?

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.
I am in an area where it sometimes freezes in the winter or gets in the 30s-40s. will this and other crape myrtle trees survive that?
K l on Aug 29, 2016
We also live in northern states of US where it sometimes goes below 10 degrees and with wind chill can feel like -4 degrees! So far the crape myrtle trees I purchased have survived and so did the one bush crape myrtle I planted in a oversized planter. They all have such beautiful colored blooms and in abundance as well. Good luck with yours since we had good luck with our crape myrtles!
Does this attract bees?
Jessica S on Oct 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Bees were around mine. I'm always happy to plant something the bees enjoy.
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 early in the year can these be planted?
Bob C on Jan 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Planting in fall/winter/early spring, while they are in their dormant stage helps them get their roots, established without having to give nutrients to the rest of the tree. Also, with extra care you can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather.

JANET P on Aug 8, 2016

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.
Is November to late to plant in zone 8?
Sue A on Oct 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Dear Sue, You should be fine planting this crape Myrtle in November. Your ground should not be frozen yet, but beginning to chill. Good luck.
