The Enduring Red™ Crape Myrtle adds spectacular color to a landscape. Scarlet flower buds burst open to reveal ruffled blooms, which grow in clusters for an even more eye-catching appearance. This Crape Myrtle starts to bloom in early summer and continues to rebloom through fall. The Lagerstroemia hybrid 'PIILAG B5' also boasts some showy foliage. The glossy leaves are red to start and fade into a deep, dark green. 

The Enduring Red™ Crape Myrtle makes a lovely specimen or showy hedge. Plant this shrub along a porch or deck to divide the space without blocking sightlines. Grow this Crape Myrtle in a container for more flexible placement options on a patio or balcony. The foliage resists powdery mildew for added convenience. 

Enduring Red™ Crape Myrtle Care

For best results, plant Enduring Red™ in full sun and in fertile, moist, and well-drained soil. Young plants need water several times a week, while established plants need water once weekly. Apply a balanced fertilizer in early spring before new growth appears.

Apply a layer of mulch around the base in the fall to protect the roots from cold temperatures. Prune Enduring Red™ Crape Myrtle in late winter or early spring before the shrub wakes up from dormancy.

Enduring Red™ Crape Myrtle Spacing

The Enduring Red™ Crape Myrtle reaches 4 to 5 feet tall and wide. Create a hedge by spacing plants 4 to 5 feet apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
