“Dynamite!” was the reaction of the breeder of this fabulous Lagerstroemia when he saw his seedling come into flower. From mid-summer, Lagerstroemia indica 'Dynamite' explodes into a mass of brilliant red flowers, creating an extravagant blazing display that smothers the foliage. The unusual crepe-like flowers are held in large panicles, up to 20cm long, and their papery texture means that they last for an incredibly long time, with the flowering performance continuing into the autumn. 'Dynamite' is a variety especially noted for the clear intensity of its red-coloured blooms.

Lagerstroemia makes a dramatic specimen shrub for a south-facing patio or sheltered wall where it can soak up plenty of heat, usefully extending the season not only with its wow-factor flowering performance but also with its colourful foliage which emerges crimson in the spring, matures to dark green in the summer and then turns orangey-red in the autumn. Maximum height: 400cm (157in). Spread: 300cm (118in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Plant Lagerstroemia in any rich fertile soil in full sun. Although reasonably hardy once established, Crepe Myrtle enjoys a hot sheltered position and is best grown against a south facing wall or as a specimen plant in the conservatory.
Feed and water Lagerstroemia regularly particularly when grown in containers. Crepe Myrtle plants will appreciate some protection from hard frosts throughout winter. Prune in winter or spring whilst dormant to remove and dead, damaged or misplaced stems and maintain a pleasing shape.
