Blooms on new wood. Pruning depends on the plant’s role in the landscape, however, these large, tree-like crapemyrtles are best pruned only to develop an appealing form. Regular pruning or cutting back should generally be avoided.
Looking for a crapemyrtle that doesn’t disappear in the crowd? This is it! The CENTER STAGE® Red series was developed by Spring Meadow’s Megan Mathey with the goal of very disease resistant black foliage and super stunning flower color. CENTER STAGE® Red is the first to market, with vivacious cerise-colored blooms in summer.
