Shell Pink™, Purely Purple™, and Mystic Magenta™.

US: J. Berry Nursery introduces three debuts

Shell Pink™ sports bright coral blooms, Mystic Magenta™ shines with masses of magenta flowers, and the vibrant violet flowers of Purely Purple™ join the rainbow of choices currently available in the Black Diamond® Collection: Best Red™, Blush™, Crimson Red™, Pure White™, and Red Hot™. Each selection in the series introduced by J. Berry Nursery boasts deep, purple-black foliage appearing in early spring that contrasts beautifully with the long lasting blooms, beginning in early summer and lasting until first frost. Black Diamond® Crapemyrtles are hardy in zones 7-10, behave as perennials in zone 6, and can be used as annuals in zone 2-5.

The newest introductions perform perfectly in many applications. With maximum growth of 10 to 12 feet tall and 8 feet wide, Black Diamond® Crapemyrtles serve as excellent borders along driveways and fences or colorful flowering hedges when pruned. Additionally, Black Diamond® Crapemyrtles can add color and drama to patios and porches as focal points in containers. Along with stunning foliage, beautiful blooms, and compact growth, Black Diamond® Crapemyrtles tolerate drought, perform well in small gardens, resist mildew and cercospora leaf spot, and maintain their leaf color throughout the seasons without fading.
