    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Delta Moonlight is an exciting new hybrid that holds up to that flowering standard, packing a punch when it is smothered during summer with white 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 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 Moonlight 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 Moonlight adapts to many soil types, provided the soil is well-drained. It grows and blooms best in full sun though light shade is tolerated in the hottest locations.
