Fill your garden with the bright white blooms and contrasting foliage of this garden gem. Order your Black Diamond® Pure White Crape Myrtle today - before they're gone!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Crapes are full sun lovers, so plant in an area with well-drained soil and 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily.

After you have found your planting area, dig your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Comb your hands over the root ball to free up the roots a bit before planting. Place your tree in the hole and make sure that the root crown (where the root ball meets the trunk of the tree) is level with the soil surface. Backfill the hole and water to settle the tree's roots. Finally, mulch the area around the tree to conserve moisture.

2. Watering: Though they are drought tolerant once established, you may have to water young trees more often, especially in the summer heat. If you're not sure when to water, however, simply check the surrounding 3 inches of soil for dryness and water when this area is dry.

3. 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.

4. Pruning: For a more graceful tree shape, remove all but 4 to 5 strong trunks and then remove the lateral branches around the lower half of the tree. Remove any damaged or crossing branches during the late winter, as well as any suckers, or low-growing branches.

unexpected beauty

shipment was spot on, the trees looked fine (little wear and tear on one of the four) not bad odds; money was easy on the pocket book. never had heard of "black diamond" before so was delighted to see it. It has already produced blooms and lots of new growth. the contrast is spectacular, as stated on your site. can't wait for the coming years enjoyment.
