Cherry Dazzle® Dwarf Red Crepe Myrtle. This cultivar was developed by Dr. Michael Dirr and it is absolutely my favorite dwarf crepe myrtle. It makes a low dense mound of up to 3' with a greater spread. As with all crepe myrtles. it needs to be planted in full sun for most of the day to get the best bloom. It has orange-red new growth and a burgundy fall color.
