                                              Siren Red® is a moderate grower which can

                                              The oxblood red flowers are distinctly darker
                                              red than Dynamite® or Red Rocket®. Flowers
                                              appear by early July and continue until frost.
                                              Siren Red® grows and flowers best when NOT

Crapemyrtle grow best and flower most profusely in full sun. Crapemyrtle will grow in most
soils, however the better the plant growth, the more flowers. Water during droughts for better
flowering. Fertilize moderately ONLY in spring; do not fertilize crapemyrtle in the fall.
