Black, Glossy Foliage Meets Coral Red Blooms

Why Thunderstruck™ Coral Boom™ Crape Myrtle Trees?

Living up to its name, the Thunderstruck™ Coral Boom™ features a rich contrast of black foliage and tons of bright coral blooms. And since you’ll get flowers from early summer until the first frost, getting months of color is a given.

You'll have the best yard on the block. Plus, it’s drought-tolerant, cold hardy, and particularly suited for smaller gardens, so you'll have unmatched beauty and effortless growth. Especially since this tree matures super quickly to create a one-of-a-kind look in no time.

Why is Better

We’ve planted, nurtured, and shipped your Thunderstruck™ Coral Boom™ Crape Myrtle with the utmost care, so you get all of the benefits without any of the work. Because we’ve put in the extra work, long before it arrives at your door, you'll reap the rewards.

And this variety is nearly impossible to find at your local nursery or garden center.

Once it's delivered to your door, you’ll get vibrant color and full growth, completely carefree.

Bright red blooms and unique black foliage are just a click away – get your Thunderstruck™ Coral Boom™ Crape Myrtle Tree today, before it’s gone!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Well-drained soil and a fun sun location are ideal for your Crape Myrtle. Simply select an area that receives 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day. Once you’ve selected a location, dig a hole that’s about two times the size of your plant’s root ball. Place your tree, backfill the soil, and tamp down to finish. Water after planting your Crape to settle its roots.

2. Watering: Water your Crape Myrtle thoroughly every other day for the first month. After that, scale back to once every week or week and a half.

If you’re not sure when to water your plant, simply check its soil. If its surrounding soil near your Crape is dry, down to about 2 or 3 inches, it’s time to water.

3. Fertilizing: Feed your Crape Myrtle with a well-balanced fertilizer once each year, just as new growth emerges.

4. Pruning: Prune your Crape Myrtle during late winter or early spring to achieve your desired height and shape but do so carefully – no need to cut off all its branches!
