Lagerstroemia indica 'Whit VII' Cultivar

"Oxblood red" flowers are distinctly darker red than Dynamite® or Red Rocket®. Darkness/intensity of red is less effected by cool, cloudy conditions. New growth is wine, then quickly changes to dark green. The slowest grower of the 'Whit' reds but may reach 3 feet in one growing season in a 3-5 gallon container. May reach 10 feet at maturity. High mildew resistance. Darkest red flowers yet.
