Red Crepe Myrtle is a caretaker's dream. They require practically no attention from a gardener, and should never be topped or pruned. They are both insect and drought resistant, and deer also avoid eating the tree. They are a perfect addition to any landscape plan. Red Crepe Myrtle is a Summer plant. The crape myrtle is a flowering tree with multiple tree trunks and beautiful color, which is often planted in both commercial and private settings. All crape myrtles require the full sun, especially the red-flowered crape myrtles. This is because cloudy weather or shade can cause some sections of the tree to lose their red flower color. The crape myrtle is widely used in landscaping because of its beauty and its low maintenance.

As with other crape myrtles, once established, they are drought-tolerant, but with extra water, they will grow larger and faster. Crape myrtles don't require fertilizers but will grow faster if correctly applied. Also, crape myrtles should not be planted too deep. The root system grows well along the surface or in a well-aerated soil. Usually, crape myrtles need little pruning when adequately placed in the garden. The best time to prune the crape myrtle is after the leaves have fallen. For low maintenance, and overall best results, choose a selection where the ultimate size fits well in the selected garden. The red-flowered crape myrtle usually is available in any format.
