My wife and I saw a few today in Waxahachie that had deep scarlet blooms. We've got white, pink and light red in our yard but have not seen this scarlet color in any local nursery.

Anyone know where I can get some?

My wife took one look and said "Ooh I want some of those", so I guess I'm on a mission.

Thanks in advance.

Dr. Carl Whitcomb is the cultivator of many beautiful red crepe myrtle! See:http://lacebarkinc.com/pat_plants.htm
"Red Rocket" is an upright tree form single or multiple stem to 15 feet or more. It has high mildew resistance and huge flower clusters up to 25 inches tall! The color is a beautiful cherry red in full sunlight. Clouds or shade will reduce color and flecks of white appear.
