The Crape Myrtle that Dazzles

Here's why your Landscape needs the Strawberry Dazzle Crape Myrtle:

  • Gorgeous, bright rose-colored blooms that last from late Spring through the Fall
  • Minimal growth just 3-5 feet for multiple planting options
  • Peeling bark adds visual accent to eye-popping flowers
  • Resistant to drought and mildew makes it perfect for warmer climates

Let the Blooms Begin...and Keep Coming!

There's no better way to frame your landscape with breathtaking beauty than by planting the Strawberry Dazzle Crape Myrtle. Renowned for its neon red blooms in staggering numbers, the Strawberry Dazzle will have neighbors talking and passersby slowing down to enjoy the scenery that this small shrub provides. The best part is the show of opulent blooms is not short lived. From late spring through the fall, a continuous parade of vivid red flowers will flood your tree and brighten your landscape. It's a rich look that will bring out the beauty of your entire property.

The Little Crape that Could

The small stature of the Strawberry Dazzle is part of its wonderful allure. Topping out at just 5 feet, the swarms of incredible blooms will appear suspended in midair. Once you get past the flowers, a closer look and you'll notice the smooth, painted look of the peeling bark. It's the perfect complement to the fluorescent red flowers that will flood your yard for months on end. A shrub this beautiful would seem delicate; but that's not the case with the Strawberry Dazzle. In fact, this 4 season shrub is mildew resistant and drought tolerant so it's perfect for a number of planting locations.

With beauty and brawn, there's so much to love about the Strawberry Dazzle. Be sure to include this spectacular specimen in your design plans and order several today while they're still available.

Although Crape Myrtles are very well suited for hot and humid environments, a long summer can still take its toll on the leaves, especially in a nursery setting. The leaves may be showing some signs of stress, such as discoloration, or possibly even some signs of fungus. Any concern would have been treated before the trees left our nursery, but the discoloration will still show on the leaves. The trees will go dormant soon and the discolored leaves will fall. Once the trees are planted in an open location they will not exhibit these symptoms again in the spring.

Stunning beauty, but definitely NOT hardy
Title says it. Definitely NOT hardy in a Zone 6. I live on the border of Zone 6-7, and both of mine did not survive the winter.

Beautiful - But a fragile swan
These guys are really nice when they are in the proper environment. My neighbor at the beach in S.C. put some in his yard and they were wonderful in the sandy soil with mottled sun and pine straw. I liked them so much I planted some at my home in N.VA. They struggled for 6 months and then succumbed during this past winter. Just not hardy enough for the winter stress BUT FGT honored the warranty lickety split.

Dont get me wrong; when I first laid eyes on the Crape Myrtle in the state of Alabama as we were passing through, I thought it was wonderful. When I found out that it really is not conducive to my planting zone I wanted it anyway. It did well and tried to bloom somewhat, but not much. Now that the weather has changed I've covered it with mulch and leaves , hoping for it not to freeze. I will be able to give you a better answer next spring; if it re-blooms.

a small burst of color
MY little flowering forever plant. I had placed her in an area near my water source. I quickly realized that she had to be moved because my dog did not seemed to care when she was coming for the water hose. I moved her in from of my shed. Created a bed with other small plants. She has not stop giving me flowers. I take lots of pictures.

Planting & Care

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

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Strawberry Dazzle® Dwarf 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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Strawberry Dazzle® Dwarf 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 Strawberry Dazzle® Dwarf Crape Myrtle again after the transplant is complete.

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.
