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. Plus, you can choose between two different versions of this vibrant tree - a stately, elegant single-stem trunk, or a full, lush multi-stem!
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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- Dynamite Crape Myrtle
so far so good....
tree was well packaged and arrived in very timely manner and seemed healthy. So far it seems to be doing well so I look forward to seeing it next spring.
Little engine that could
Got him planted. He stands at around 2 feet If he grows to be a mighty tree it’ll be a few years. Just blossomed. Looking forward to watching the process. ✌️
Overall experience was not good. Item was delivered in a damaged state negating the extra cost incurred to have a plant which would flower this season. Fast Growing Trees did compensate so I have to comment their customer service.
We're very sorry for how your tree arrived and glad we were able to make it right with a full credit!
