Crape Myrtle Black Diamond Pure White


Description: The Black Diamond Pure White Crape Myrtle is characterized by its brilliant white flowers, which contrast beautifully with its dark, almost black foliage. The flowers bloom in large clusters during the summer months, providing a stunning display of color. The foliage of this variety is glossy and dark, creating a dramatic backdrop for the pristine white blooms.

Size: This variety typically grows to a height of 10 to 12 feet (3 to 3.7 meters) with a spread of 8 to 10 feet (2.4 to 3 meters). It has a moderate growth rate and a compact, upright habit. With proper pruning, it can be maintained as a smaller specimen or allowed to grow into a larger shrub or small tree.

Best Growing Zones: The Black Diamond Pure White Crape Myrtle thrives in USDA hardiness zones 7 to 10. It is well-suited to regions with hot summers and mild winters, such as the southern United States. It can tolerate a range of soil types, but it prefers well-drained soil with good fertility.

Soil Requirements: Like most Crape Myrtles, the Black Diamond Pure White variety prefers well-drained soil and full sun exposure. It can tolerate a variety of soil types, including sandy, loamy, or clay soil, as long as it is well-drained. Regular watering is important, especially during the first year after planting, to help establish a strong root system.

Maintenance: Crape Myrtles are relatively low-maintenance plants, and the Black Diamond Pure White variety is no exception. Pruning is typically done in late winter or early spring to remove any dead or damaged branches and promote new growth. Regular deadheading of spent flowers can also encourage continued blooming throughout the summer.
