Includes three actively growing plants in 4" pots.

A true standout in the landscape! Foliage begins as maroon red in the spring and turns to dark green while panicles of vibrant, fiery red blooms emerge at the tips of the branches. This mid-sized, heavy flowering, upright grower provides reliable color with little care. 'Red Rooster®' is perfect for single planting or grouping in any garden where a splash of color is needed! This mid-sized, heavy flowering, upright grower is a natural attractant for butterflies and hummingbirds. Crape Myrtles have massive blooms and continue blooming long other plants have finished for the year. The showy blossoms attract all types of winged friends! Crape myrtles perform best in full sun and a wide variety of soil conditions. Remove spent blooms to encourage reblooming.
