Raspberry Sundae® Crape Myrtle typically grows to a height of 8 to 12 feet (2.4 to 3.6 meters) with a spread of 6 to 10 feet (1.8 to 3 meters). It has a compact, upright growth habit and features dark green foliage that turns shades of orange and red in the fall.
One of the most distinctive features of Raspberry Sundae® Crape Myrtle is its stunning flower clusters. During the summer months, it produces abundant blossoms that start as white and gradually transition to a beautiful raspberry pink color. This unique coloration creates a captivating two-tone effect, with the older flowers remaining white while the newer ones turn pink. The flowers attract butterflies and other pollinators, enhancing the garden's beauty and biodiversity.
Raspberry Sundae® Crape Myrtle is known for its tolerance to heat and drought once established. It thrives in full sun and well-draining soil. This variety is often used as a specimen plant, in borders, or as a focal point in the landscape, where its striking flower coloration can make a statement.
