FAQ: What is the difference between the reds in the Black Diamond Collection?
Red Hot™-We have found Red Hot to naturally prefer to take on more of an upright tree-form. The bloom color is the darkest red of the Black Diamond Collection.
Crimson Red™- We have found Crimson Red to naturally take on a shrubbier habit. The bloom color is the brightest red in the Black Diamond Crapemyrtle Collection.
Best Red™-We have found the growth habit and bloom color of Best Red to be right between Crimson Red and Red Hot. Best Red is also one of the earliest bloomers of the collection.

STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
So far looking well. Quick delivery no damage.
When the plant produces I hope to post pictures
Had a shipping issue that damaged the plants but customer service was outstanding and within a few days had replacement plants sent out that were perfect. Can’t wait to see them bloom!
I was wondering if you all have the blush black diamond crape myrtle for sale
Very pleased with my recent purchase. Plants doing well and look forward to seeing them bloom later this season
I bought 2 perennial crape myrtle last fall.checking the limbs they seem to break into. Will they come back or are they dead? Do they regrow from the ground?
Hello Joyce, If you are in Zone 6 or colder, you will want to treat your crape myrtle as a perennial that will re-grow from the ground each year. The plant will not reach maturity height and width due to the dieback each year, but it can make a lovely flowering hedge if mass planted. We only recommend Zone 7-9 for the Black Diamond crape myrtles. The brand manufacturer has all geographical considerations listed on their website here: https://www.blackdiamondblooms.com/portfolio/crimson-red
