Dormancy Notice: This plant, like many others, enters dormancy or semi-dormancy in the late fall through early spring. *THIS PLANT IS NOT DEAD. It is completely healthy but upon receiving the plant, you may notice it exhibits fewer leaves, discoloration, or complete leaf drop. This is normal and essential to the plant's health. In fact, planting during dormancy promotes root growth, giving your plant a better start for spring, when new foliage will begin to grow.

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.
