Crape Myrtle - Black Diamond Lavender LaceLagerstroemia indica
USDA Hardiness Zones: 7-9
Pastel purple blooms and deep black foliage make Black Diamond® Lavender Lace™ an elegant accessory for container gardens and landscape beds, but they’ll hold their own as blooming hedges, as well. Lavender Lace™ combines traditional beauty with a commanding presence wherever it’s planted. A maximum size of 10-12 feet tall and 8 feet wide lets gardeners use this plant wherever they need a bit of interest in the garden. Plant alone as a specimen or mix and match with other Black Diamond® Blooms for an outstanding design. Crape Myrtles look particularly nice when lining driveways or fences, and can also be planted in a container on your deck or patio as long as the container is at least 12 inches in diameter. These crape myrtles are drought tolerant, mildew resistant, and low-maintenance. Zone 6 planting requires protection during the winter otherwise, it will die back to the ground and blooms will be sparse. The Black Diamond is hardy in Zones 7-9.
USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9.

How to Plant
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.
About Black Diamond®
It was ship fast and well package done got it planted in my flower bed looking great I planted some lantana's and some Veronica's and the flower bed with it so you all doing a good job
Plant arrived in excellent condition as it was packed well in a corrugated box. Beautiful burgundy leaves and no flowers yet. Planted and thriving, looking forward to growth and blooms, planted in full sun. I added some organic material to the planting soil and am watering it well every other day as it is very hot and humid here. Very pleased with this purchase.
