Vibrant Red Blooms on Compact Dwarf Form

Why Petite Red Imp™ Crape Myrtle Trees?

Turn up the drama with this compact crape myrtle and its show-stopping crimson blooms. The Petite Red Imp™ is a dwarf variety of the traditional Crape, but it gives you a huge impact in your landscape, especially when several are massed together in a single-color planting.

Dramatic, deep crimson blossoms, smooth and distinctive bark, and dark green foliage that begins as a coppery bronze in spring define the Petite Red Imp. It gives you color from late summer through fall, thriving in full to partial sun and requiring minimal watering once established.

Even better? It attracts graceful wildlife and beneficial pollinators to your garden, all while growing strong through drought, humidity, pests, and urban pollution. Basically, there's nothing the Petite Red Imp Crape Myrtle can't do.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Crapes are full sun lovers, so try and find a spot where they will get as much as possible. Other than that, your tree prefers well-drained soil.

Dig your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Lightly 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(s) of the tree) is level with the soil surface. Mulch the area around the tree to conserve water moisture and deter competing weeds.

2. Watering: Myrtles are drought tolerant but may need a bit more attention with watering during the hot summer season. If you're not sure when to water, however, simply check your surrounding soil about 3 inches down.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a complete, balanced, slow-release fertilizer formula in the early spring and summer seasons.

4. Pruning: Remove all but 4 to 5 strong trunks and then remove the lateral branches around the bottom half of the tree. To encourage branching, make your cuts on the longer, leggy limbs.

Already has flowers

Received in good order. Healthy and doing well even though I planted in a container in 100+ degree heat. It gets full sun in the morning and filtered during the day.

Petite Red Imp

It took some time to spend the money, and I'm so happy I did! The "Imp" arrived healthy with dozens of buds, that have since started blooming!!! It's beautiful!
