‘Natchez’ Crapemyrtles

Q: We have several ‘Natchez’ crapemyrtles and want to plant a red one between the white ones.
What crapemyrtle blooms red at same time or close to ‘Natchez’?

A: ‘Dynamite’ has a terrific red flower color and is a tree-form crapemyrtle, like ‘Natchez’. As you know, crapemyrtle varieties assume several shapes, from the dwarf ‘Chica Red’ to the large shrub ‘Tonto’. I’ve collected references for the various varieties and shapes at xrl.us/CRAPECULTIVARS  (BROKEN)
