Talk about red AND ruffled! This new crapemyrtle has distinctly different, carnation-like, glowing red flowers that show beautifully against the lustrous dark green foliage. Foliage turns orange-red in fall. The habit is upright, but compact, with dense branching, making a nice small tree form. It is also highly resistant to Cercospora leaf spot and powdery mildew, which is quite a breeding accomplishment in red crapes. Bred by Plant Introductions, Inc.
