enjoy the plant
I received this plant in the third day with great package. It looks so strong with lovely cherry flowers blooming. The same flower color as they post on its web. At the same day I planted it in my garden, watering it regularly. Everyday enjoys its blooming. May it may hardy after this winter. We lives at the north of Philadelphia.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Strawberry Dazzle® Dwarf Crape Myrtle

Strawberry Dazzle® Dwarf Crape Myrtle Planting Diretions

The Strawberry Dazzle Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia) is described as a shrub due to its small, mature stature of only 4-5 feet tall and wide. They do best in warmer climates, USDA growing zones 6-9, are mildew resistant and also drought tolerant. They bloom bright, neon rose-colored flowers from the end of spring through fall and the peeling bark adds an extra touch of visual interest to this shrub. Plant one in the ground or in a container as an accent, or create a border for your garden and watch as they attract plenty of birds and butterflies.

Choosing a location: Crapes are FULL SUN lovers so try and find a spot where they will get as much sun as possible. Without the proper exposure your blooming will be substantially reduced or it may not bloom at all. The Dazzle is very adaptable to many soil types so just be sure that the area you’re looking to plant has adequate drainage when watering.

Planting directions:
1) After you have found your planting area, make your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep.
2) Carefully remove the myrtle’s root ball from the container. Lightly tapping the container around the bottom will help free it up without causing too much damage to the root system.
3) Lightly comb your hands over the root ball to free up the roots a bit before planting.
4) Place your tree in the hole and make sure that the root crown (where the root ball meets the trunk(s) of the tree) is level with the soil surface. Crapes need to be able to pull oxygen into their root systems so covering them too much may inhibit their growth.
5) Tamp down the soil lightly as you backfill the hole to prevent air pockets from forming and then water after you’ve finished to settle the soil.
6) Mulch the area around the tree to conserve water moisture and deter competing weeds and grasses from growing.

Watering: Myrtles are quite drought tolerant but may need a bit more attention with watering during the hot summer season. Depending on your soil, there may need to be more frequent watering, especially those with very sandy soils. After planting, water regularly to start. If the climate is hot you may need to water up to five times weekly especially in lighter soils. During the cooler seasons you’ll only need to water once weekly. Proper soil moisture is important in the hot season so that you’ll have a healthier tree and better looking blooms.

Pruning: Crape pruning is always a “mixed bag” if asking anyone when and how to prune. “Crape murder” is a common term heard with those who go far beyond what is necessary when trimming their myrtles. Prune in the late winter before any of the growth begins. If done in the late fall you will jeopardize the tree’s dormancy state which can lead to the tree dying. Sterilize your cutting tools with rubbing alcohol to ensure no pathogens infect the tree and always make your cuts at a 45 degree angle.

Fertilizing: Your crape will greatly benefit from a light application of a complete, balanced, slow release fertilizer formula in the early spring and summer seasons. Slow release fertilizer will cut back on sucker growths but be aware, excessive fertilizing can lead to tree and limb growth but will inhibit the blooms from forming due to excess amounts of nitrogen.

These will line the low stucco retaining wall runs nearly the width of our property. Since they face the back of the property, they will only be seen during the summer months when we have large parties in the yard, so them going bare during the winter months does not present a huge problem

I moved 3 miniature crepe myrtles this spring when I bought this house because they were planted too close together (no room at all between them) They're about 2 feet tall and never got any leaves this year. They're still alive because if I scratch the bark it's green. What should I do?

Can it be grown in Southern California?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2014
Is this tree good for upstate NY? About 1 1/2 hrs. From NYC I can't tell from your map
A shopper on Jun 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend this or any Crape Myrtle for Upstate New York. Most likely it would die from the harsh ground freeze in the winter.
Does it have leaves all year?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The leaves drop off in winter in high desert climate because night time temperature goes to freezing.
Are your dwarf crape myrtles deer resistant?
Martha P on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The area where we live has a large deer population and a lot of crape myrtles, both bush and tree varieties. With these plants being dwarf if the deer are hungry they might target the plants. Our plants are protected by a 6' tall rod iron fence surrounding our home. Deer can jump over if interested, but so far so good. We also have a couple rosemary plants right in front of the crape myrtles and deer do not like rosemary. Hope this is of some help to you.

Will this grow in zone 10 ? I'm in Northern California (Bay Area) and we don't get snow but occasionally will reach 32 in the winter.
Kimberly G on Jun 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am not too familiar with zone 10 but here in the high desert, we get below freezing in the winter and above 100 in the summer and the crepe myrtle is doing fine.
Will leaves fall during Fall/Winter?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am around the St. Louis area and so far, this is 9-6-14, and none of the leaves are dropping.
when is the right time to plant this in Md?
katherine d on Jul 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Most people prefer to plant early spring or fall, however, you can plant in the summer as well. If you do decide to plant in the summer just make sure you can give it adequate water when the temperatures are up.
Can this shrub be groomed to look like a tree?
Kayna P on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Ours is VERY small - a low growing bush . If what you mean by a "tree" is a single trunk with higher branches I imagine you could train it by forcing one of the branches to stand upright tied to a stake. Maybe check sites on you tube about training a plant to grow as a standard they do it with roses and lilacs and cherries why not crape myrtles?
Can you plant this close to the house. Can you plant in zone 9 In Oct?
Linda R on Oct 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be planted close to the house; as long as there is a lot of sunshine. As far as the zone is concerned, I believe the safest bet is to review on line.
What is best time of year to plant? Can you plant in September? (Strawberry dazzle crepe myrtle scrub)
Sherri on Sep 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I planted mine in Aug., and it is thriving and blooming. I suppose that it all depends on your zone. I am in zone six and would have no qualms about planting another one now were I interested in getting another. ... It just needs to get established. Water it immediately after putting in the yard. Dig the hole widely and deeply enough so that the roots have soft soil. Have an indentation around the plant so that the water doesn't run off.
How deep will roots go?
A shopper on Aug 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Mine has been in for a year now and is about to bloom for the second time. The roots do not appear to go really deep- about average for a shrub. If you hare going to put it in a pot I would suggest a larger size. Mine is in my garden.
Will this plant work in house at a window over winter? Will it flower if climate is warm over winter?
Marian S on Aug 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I planted this tree over a year ago. We live in MD and it was fine in our winter. I never had it inside. But if you want it to stay small, keep it in a smaller planter.
