Lagerstroemia 'Ebony Flame' ~ Ebony Flame Crape Myrtle
The Ebony Flame Crape Myrtle typically grows to a height of 8 to 12 feet (2.4 to 3.6 meters) with a spread of 6 to 10 feet (1.8 to 3 meters). It has a compact, upright growth habit and features dark green foliage that turns shades of orange and red in the fall.
One of the standout features of the Ebony Flame Crape Myrtle is its striking flowers. During the summer months, it produces abundant clusters of deep red, almost black, flowers that create a dramatic contrast against the dark green foliage. These flowers attract butterflies and other pollinators, adding to the garden's beauty.
This crape myrtle variety is known for its tolerance to heat and drought once established. It prefers full sun and well-draining soil. The Ebony Flame Crape Myrtle is often used as a specimen plant, in borders, or as a focal point in the landscape.
