We're SO excited to be the first nursery to bring this range of three new dark-leaved crepe myrtles to market!

These Ozbreed varieties have been bred especially for Australian gardens, so they are heat and cold tolerant, frost and humidity tolerant, and the perfect compact size for smaller gardens. 

Grande Red is a tall shrub or small tree with a bushy habit,  luscious wine-dark leaves and dark ruby-pink flowers. Enjoy the way the colours of leaves and flowers change, as the sun glows through.

We can't ship this product to Tasmania, Western Australia.
