Solving the Mystery of the Black Diamond Crepe Myrtle Series

This newly introduced Crepe Myrtle exploded onto the scene last year and had everyone talking about it. But is this really a new variety, or an older, already existing variety that has been repackaged and rebranded? I investigated the situation, and what I found will surprise you.

Is this the same thing Jackson & Perkins is doing with roses? I've heard so many people saying their new roses are old roses with new names. So basically the patent expired or wasn't granted and they are deceiving folks into believing they are buying a new introduction?

WRT the "Black Diamonds" they were never patented as the Ebony series. I dunno about the J & P roses.
