Red Rocket® Crape Myrtle! Now we're talking! Red Rocket® is a popular cultivar of crape myrtle, scientifically known as Lagerstroemia indica. Here's some information about Red Rocket® Crape Myrtle:

  1. Appearance: Red Rocket® is a medium-sized deciduous tree that typically grows to a height of 10-20 feet. It has a narrow, upright growth habit with dark green foliage that turns bronze-red in the fall. The most striking feature of Red Rocket® is its vibrant, deep red flowers that bloom in large clusters during the summer.

  2. Flowering: Red Rocket® Crape Myrtle is known for its abundant and showy blooms. The flowers are held on long panicles and attract butterflies and other pollinators. The blooming period typically lasts for several weeks, adding a burst of color to the landscape.

  3. Care and Maintenance: Red Rocket® Crape Myrtle is relatively low-maintenance. It prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Regular watering, especially during dry periods, is important for establishment and optimal growth. Pruning is typically done in late winter or early spring to promote a more compact shape and encourage vigorous blooming.
