Long Lasting Color On A Space Saving Tree

The Hopi Crape Myrtle can be referred to as the ‘winter hardy’ crape because it’s cold tolerant to growing zone six. It can handle large amounts of snow, ice and freezing temperatures that other crape varieties cant.

Hopi Crape Myrtles grace the landscape with large clusters of light pink blooms that last for an entire four months, from June until September. When other flowering trees have dropped their blooms your Hopi Crape Myrtle will continue to produce more and more vibrant blossoms.

The Hopi Crape Myrtle has a rounded canopy that’s filled with lush, dark green leaves that serve as a backdrop for the pink flowers to pop against. This allows the flowers to shine even brighter in the landscape while attracting tons of attention.

Even more color comes in the fall once the Hopi Crape Myrtle’s leaves turn bright shades of red, yellow and orange. The fiery color stands out by being more vivid and brighter than the competition.

Winter is also a colorful season with the Hopi Crape Myrtle because they have multiple trunks with peeling bark with a gorgeous grey hue. The grey bark fades away to reveal younger bright cinnamon colored bark underneath that warms the landscape.

Hopi Crape Myrtles are the perfect choice for those looking for tons of color on a smaller tree that won’t take over the landscape. While other Crape Myrtle varieties reach heights of 30 feet or more the Hopi Crape Myrtle tops out at only 10 feet. 

The Hopi Crape Myrtle’s compact size allows it to be planted anywhere. It’s perfect for planting in tight spaces close to structures like by the driveway or sidewalk and under power lines. 

Best of all, Hopi Crape Myrtles are excellent choices for container growing. Their space saving stature allows them to thrive in pots. They look great in pots framing entryways and accenting porches.

By being cold hardy, drought resistant and heat tolerant, as well as pest and disease resistant nothing stops the Hopi Crape Myrtle from blooming for months.

Very Impressed!
I ordered my Hopi in April, 2016, from Fast Growing Trees. It arrived right on time, in a gallon sized light weight plastic pot. Fast Growing Trees does an excellent job of packaging their trees. The pot is encased in a plastic bag, twisted around the tree trunk, and fastened to prevent the soil from falling out during shipping. They also secured it in the box with cardboard stapled around the tree and braced against the pot which prevents it from crushing the tree if it's tipped upside down. The tree itself was outstanding quality!

Love crepe myrtles
My crepe myrtle arrived a little dry but we planted it right away and it has been doing fine. I put it in a flower bed where my old dogwood tree died. I chose the crepe myrtle because it grows fst and I wanted to fill in the empty space left by the lose of my dogwood.. I will post a picture in the spring on its progress.
Thank you

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Hopi Crape Myrtle



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Hopi Crape Myrtle.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Hopi Crape Myrtle gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Hopi Crape Myrtle again after the transplant is complete.

I saw this tree on a trip to Maryland and contacted FGT since I have done business and were very satisfied with the service.

Based on the description they. Should do well. In my climate zone (7). Also they appear to be a good fit for the area I want to plant them in. And, they will add much needed color to my yard during the summer months.
Edward W on Aug 29, 2016
My old Dogwood died and I love crepe myrtles so a fast growing Hopi seemed to fill the bill for replacement. Looking forward to long lasting pink flowers.
Carol K on Aug 29, 2016
I wanted a flowering tree that would produce great color for an extended amount of time but not grow too tall. I also needed a tree that can thrive in a minimum of 4 hours of sunlight a day for the desired area that I will be planting my Hopi Crape Myrtles. I am excited about this project and I look forward to seeing this addition to my back yard. Thank you.

I purchased this Hopi Crape Myrtle because of the good reputation of Fast Growing Trees. They have several shipping locations which also helps if there are shipping restrictions in your State. Their shipments are also backed by a Google Trusted Stores Program.

Is it possible for the Hopi to survive in Zone 5-- southeast Michigan?
gardengirl on Jul 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm assuming it will grow on that zone. Check with day growers on that. As for the quality if my trees, I bought 2 different ones m. They are both of excellent quality. Any other questions feel free to send the on. Matt
What time of year is best to plant these? I'm in zone 8b, Port Angeles, WA.
judith b on Oct 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Fall would be a great time to plant the Hopi crape myrtle in your area of Port Angeles. Very mild and a lot of root growth should occur during this time. Do not fertilize until spring, though. Good luck with the plant and place it in the sunniest spot possible.
When is the best planting time in south, west Connecticut?
Mejs1961 on Nov 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Late fall to early spring and even in the summer.
