Lagerstroemia Crape Myrtle, ‘Red Rocket’


Red Rocket (Lagerstroemia indica ‘Whit VI’) is a very special variety of Crape myrtle that produces deep wine red leaves in the spring and summer which then change to dark purplish green, providing a striking contrast to its vibrant Red late summer flowers.

Red Rocket is a very colorful and fast growing crape myrtle that can grow 3′ – 5′ per year.  It has a vase shaped growth habit and is known for its beautiful red flowers that start appearing in July through September. It is a very popular tree, and is valued for its late summer color.
