Enduring Summer Red Crepe Myrtle really lives up to its name. It is one of the earliest flowering Crepe Myrtles available with the first flowers appearing in late November; Enduring Summer Red continues to re bloom all Summer long and into Autumn with an abundance of bright red blooms. During Spring, stunning red leaves appear before changing to a glossy green foliage prior to flowering. Enduring Summer Red is a medium shrub with a compact habit and grows to around 1.5m, it prefers well drained soil and should receive at least 8 hours of summer sunlight to flower at its full potential.

Cultural Notes: For new plantings, dig a hole one and a half times wider than the plant's container; place plant in hole, keeping the top of the root ball ground level; and back fill with soil. Water thoroughly and then mulch around the base to conserve moisture and reduce weeds. New plantings require more frequent watering than established plants. Enduring Summer Red likes regular watering during its first growing season to become strong. Add some plant food to give the plant another bloom boost! Very easy to care for and is drought tolerant once established, simply prune flower heads off during Winter and fertilise with an all purpose fertiliser in early spring.
