The Crape Myrtle was introduced to the US over 150 years ago from China, Japan and Southeast Asia. In 1998 Dr. Carl Whitcomb developed the Dynamite Crape Myrtle, which is a prolific producer of long lasting clusters of deep red flowers. Each cluster within the Dynamite Crape Myrtle has hundreds of red flowers and each cluster can range from 8” to 16” long. The Dynamite Crape Myrtle has a very broad and upright growing habit with small alternate leaves that are rounded at the base and are 1” to 2” long. The Dynamite Crape Myrtle has leaves that are bright red in the spring, bright green in the summer and in the fall they turn a vibrant orange-red. Each summer the Dynamite Crape Myrtle exfoliates its gray-brown colored bark in thin strips to expose a smooth and light brown colored bark. The Dynamite Crape Myrtle is adaptable to a wide range of soil types, very drought tolerant and has a good resistance to powdery mildew.
