dynamite crape myrtle for Houston

Does anyone know where I can get these specific crapes? they seem to be impossible to locate in Houston or Sugar Land. I think it would look great to offset all those lavender/white crapes i see all over the place. I saw some mail order places, but I was not too sure about them.

thanks

Hmm... I see them everywhere up here. Lowes, Calloways, most of independent nurseries. They often sell them when they are at its full blooming, usually early summer, I think.

Wow. I wish they would stock them here. I guess it is more of a Dallas crape myrtle. I have yet to see the Dynamite variety in any places in Houston. I was able to locate 4 Red Rockets a few years back, but no Dynamites. If all else fails....mail order :)

I have seen Dynamites before in the Houston area though I can't remember exactly where. Possibly Lowes/HD or Houston Garden Center.

Do you ever get up to Fredricksburg "Wildseed Farm"? That's where I got mine. I studied them all and found the one that I could divide into 2 plants. Before you go, you might want to call to confirm they have some. Put yours on hold.

Good luck.
