More about Dynamite Crape Myrtle...
Finally a crape myrtle that produces true red flowers that will pack a punch in your landscape! The Dynamite Crape Myrtle produces an abundance of large, true red flower clusters for up to 100 days during summer in your landscape. It has an upright habit growing from 12 to 20 feet tall depending on pruning, and a broad, rounded canopy from 8 to 16 feet wide. The dark green leaves turn to orange and red in fall and contrast nicely with the exfoliating, grey-brown bark.
Dynamite is a tall crape myrtle selection best for planting in small groupings or as a single specimen, as a colorful screen or hedge, on the corners to frame in homes and other structures, or planted on both sides of an entryway.

My Dynamite Red Crape Myrtle came as advertised it came fast with a fantastic price. We planted it right away and if the late frost doesn't hurt the plant we are more than satisfied. I would recommend Gardener Direct to anyone that is looking for a high quality plant.

The Dynamite Crape Myrtle was shipped as a gift. I am told it arrived in excellent condition and months later it is doing well. The person receiving it loves it.
Very sturdy and healthyApril 16th 2014
Planted last fall. We had a hard winter but all 6 plants are coming in healthy and strong. I'm looking forward to the bloom time!!!
I am thrilled with my tree.April 11th 2014
I am so happy with the Dynamite Crape Myrtle which I purchased last year. It was very healthy and had an abundance of red flowers. I was concerned over the winter months as we had such a cold season this year, however with a little pruning and some fertalizer it is now full of new growth. I would give it a five star rating.
Thankis for mpressive serviceSeptember 1st 2013
I want to thank you for the shipment of the new trees. Hearing the message that was left on my answering machine that told me the originals were damaged in transit. Your expediting of the replacements was impressive. FYI: these trees are part of a memorial to be planted on church grounds in remembrance for two special people that is to take place this week. Worried at first, I now can proceed with the ceremony because of your quick response to my order. The whole team here thanks your company and some have asked for your website for ordering in the future. God Bless, James

I am pleased that the plants came quickly and in great shape. The only thing I would ask would be instructions for planting, but that is easily accessible on the web. Thanks for the good job!
