Product Description

Bright Red Blooms Last Up to 4 Months

Why Dynamite Crape Myrtle Trees?

Developed to produce the brightest red blooms of all Crapes, the Dynamite Crape Myrtle is a specimen show-stopper. Plus, it's hassle-free, with pest and disease resistance as well as drought tolerance. So, you get spectacular blooms that last from spring to fall without harsh sprays, fertilizer, or tons of water...especially since it's fast-growing.

And it's one of the hardiest Crape Myrtles available. That means you get an excellent specimen tree, natural privacy barrier or border along your driveway that's carefree down to 0 degrees.

You get bright red blooms for months, despite tough conditions. Thriving in a number of conditions and areas, all without effort on your part, the Dynamite Crape Myrtle puts on a dazzling, vibrant show of red. When everything else has stopped blooming because of the heat and humidity of the summer, the Dynamite Crape is just getting started. And you get blooms that start light red the first year and then get deeper each passing year – giving you the best yard on the block.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Find an area with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).

Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place your tree, backfill your soil and water to settle the roots. Mulch the area around the tree to conserve moisture.

2. Watering: Myrtles are quite drought tolerant but may need more watering during the hot summer season. If you’re not sure when to water your Crape, simply check the surrounding soil about 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a slow-release fertilizer 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 bottom half of the tree.

Strong, starting to thrive

Started out kinda scared if it was going to make, it must have had a bumpy ride during shipping, box was banged up pretty bad, however it has survived through it all and starting to form new leaves, i was hoping to see blooms, just don't don't think so seeing that it's so late in the year. There's always next year, and I'm looking forward to seeing how beautiful it looks.

This was a gift to a client

I purchased two trees as a gift for clients. I could not believe how quickly the trees were delivered to them. My clients sent me photos. They were so excited and loved them.

Dynamite Myrtle

It arrived a day late with 5 leaves on one branch and the rest of it looked dead. One week after planting it looks Great with new leaf buds and growth on several branches. I’m very happy and I think it will turn out to be a nice tree. A+

Disappointed Beyond Belief

Apparently, this company doesn’t allow all the negative reviews to be posted. Look at the photo below and you decide how you would feel. My wife and I feel let down big time by this company. A twig for $89.95?

We're very sorry that your tree was disappointing. These trees that are grown here are still dormant where the ones found in your local nursery have already bloomed. It looks like our team has helped to resolve your concerns and as your tree acclimates it will leaf out and fill in beautifully!
