Crape Myrtle ‘Black Diamond’

May 2, 2013

Ok people, cool new plant alert! The new 'Black Diamond' series of crape myrtles is to die for. It's been a while since I wanted to plant a crape myrtle in my garden, but this is a must have. The 'Black Diamond' series comes in five bloom colors, all with the deepest of almost-black foliage.


The 'Pure White' is definitely going in my garden. I'll be writing a more detailed feature about the series in the Sept./Oct. issue of Neil Sperry's Gardens Magazine, so keep you're eye out!  You can see the other colors available at
