Red Rocket Crepe Myrtles offers Deep, Rich Colored Blooms
Red Rocket Crepe Myrtle will add some beauty and color to your landscaping. The Red Rocket Crepe Myrtle Tree is a beautiful addition to any property. The tree produces bright, cherry red flowers all summer long and into the fall, from July to September. The trees have very dark green foliage, which is a beautiful contrast to the red flowers. The tree produces deeper red flowers with each passing year. The blooms on the Red Rocket Crepe Myrtle shoot up from the tree and explode into a vibrant shade of red. These exotic red blooms last for 100 days and are in bloom from July to September. The dark green leaves of the tree compliment the red bloom very nicely. After the blooms are finished, the leaves will change to colors of red or yellow until they drop during the winter.
These trees will add fantastic color all summer long to any yard. They can be lined up to form a borderline of red fire on the property, or they can be used as a unique focal point in the yard. Place them close together for a red privacy screen. These trees are easy to grow. They are rapid growers and the red blooms only deepen in color as the tree ages.
Red Rocket Crape Myrtles is a variation of Red Crape Myrtles but its much more extensive and has a dark red color to its bloom
This tree has very noticeable vibrant deep red flowers. They are native to warmer regions but can grow in colder climates, although if it were to be grown in colder climates, you won’t get a very vibrant color as you would in warmer places. Do not let the soil become wet as it will grow poorly.These trees grow very quickly, so they become full very quickly. For this reason, many people choose to use these trees, planted about 8-10 feet apart, as a beautiful red privacy screen for their yards.
