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.

Dynamite Crape Myrtle

My trees arrived well packaged and in great shape. They're about 2 feet tall with lots of green leaves. They are planted but now to see if the deer leave them alone and if they survive Ohio winters. I will purchase more items from this company. I was impressed,

So far so good

The delivery person was not gentle with my tree and obviously didn't read the box instructions. It sat upside down by our garage door two days while we were out of town. I was a little concerned about whether or not it would survive the rough handling. It must have been packed with great care as it seems to be flourishing after getting planted. I'm hopeful it will take off like "dynamite"
