Lagerstroemia x 'Ebony Fire'  Sku#1959

Ebony Fire displays bright crimson summer flowers. The black foliage is an excellent contrasting color to make this a specimen crape myrtle.

Note: Regardless of hardiness zone, all crape myrtles are subject to die-back at temps below 15 degrees. Probability of this happening is increased by pruning in fall or winter. Prune only in earliest spring. Bloom will be on new wood.

* Seldom Damaged by Deer *     Attracts: Butterflies, Hummingbirds & Birds.
