    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Delta Flame is an exciting new hybrid that holds up to that flowering standard, packing a punch when it is smothered during summer with bright, dark red flowers. But, what makes it truly one of a kind is the wonderful deep maroon foliage that does not fade at all! It is a semi-dwarf with a fast rate of growth that will eventually reach a mere 6 to 10 feet in height with a spread of about 5 feet - perfect for today's smaller gardens!

    Uses

    Because of it's unique color and form, we like using Delta Flame in the landscape as a stand alone specimen in sunny parts of the landscape. Similar to Japanese maples in effect, it's outstanding features make it worthy of use as a focal point. That being said, several can be grouped together for larger splashes of color or planted in rows to form a colorful hedge. It works especially nice as espalier; trained to grow flat against light colored walls.

    Culture

    As with other Crape Myrtle, Delta Flame adapts to many soil types, provided the soil is well-drained. Delta Flame will grow best and bloom best in full sun though light shade is tolerated in the hottest locations.

    Received my order within two days. Plants were in great condition, packed in a unique way as not to damage them. Took me longer to get out and plant them than it did to get them to my home. Can't wait to see how they grow this spring. DJ in Powder Springs, GA

    Good Growing!
