Red Rocket Crape Myrtles is a variation of Red Crape Myrtles but its much more exotic and has a dark red color to its bloom 

 

The Red Rocket Crape Myrtle leaves on this are a dark green color, which nicely contrasts the gorgeous red flowers. The Red Rocket Crape Myrtle flowers themselves start off being pinkish to light red color and become progressively deeper red as the plant matures over the years. 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 multiply, 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.
