Crapemyrtles selections are a dime a dozen. There are hundreds of them, and to
have one that truly stands out from the crowd is unusual.

Dynamite Crapemyrtle, with the brightest red flowers of any crapemyrtle selection,
is one of these standouts.

The bright red, some describe it as a cherry red, flowers appear in midsummer on terminal
shoots in panicles capable of reaching a foot in length. The dark red, crape-like blooms
occasionally are flecked with a few petals of white, which only serve to heighten the intensity of
the red.

As a crapemyrtle Dynamite is considered one of the best because of the bright red
flowers and its superior powdery mildew resistance. Like all crapemyrtles, it has
outstanding drought tolerance.

Developed by Oaklahoma's Dr. Carl Whitcomb in 1998, 'Dynamite' produces abundant clusters
of absolutely spectacular deep red flowers from crimson buds they will enliven your garden from
mid summer until autumn. The blooms can reach 15 inches long and of course have the crape
paper look that we love.
The foliage starts as a deep burgundy in the spring and changes into a dark green by the end
of summer. The leaves are very large, semi-glossy very thick and mildew resistant. In the fall
the foliage turns from orange to red.

'Dynamite' exfoliates it's old gray bark to reveal the new light brown smooth bark
underneath. Plant as a specimen tree; prune into a large multi-stemmed shrub, or plant
several in a row to create a unique privacy hedge.
Dynamite is most popular for it's deep dark cherry-red blooms!
