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 flower very nicely. After the blooms are finished, the leaves will change to colors of red or yellow until they drop during the winter.

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.
