About Your Cherry Dazzle Crape Myrtle
The RAZZLE DAZZLE series, developed at a Michael Dirr breeding program at the Center for Applied Nursery Research in Dearing, Georgia, features a group of crepe myrtle cultivars noted for ease of care, excellent flower colors, handsome foliage, compact habit and good disease resistance. Cherry Dazzle Crape Myrtle is a deciduous, spreading, multi-stemmed shrub that typically matures to 3’ tall and 4’ wide. It features red buds opening to crepe-papery inflorescences of cherry red flowers that bloom in summer (July – August). If spent flowers are promptly deadheaded, additional flowers will continue to bloom into fall. Dark green foliage (bronze new growth in spring) turns burgundy-red in fall. Grayish-brown bark exfoliates with age. Flowers give way to round seed capsules which often persist well into winter. ‘Gamad I’ is commonly sold in commerce under the trade name of Cherry Dazzle Crape Myrtle.
