Dynamite Crape Myrtle is native to China. We like to plant them to create a privacy screen or let them shine in a yard as a colorful specimen. Plant them in a spot that gets plenty of full sun exposure and they will thrive. Once established, they have little to moderate watering needs and are drought tolerant. They are easy to maintain. We can prune them in late winter and feed them with fertilizer in spring.
