We received our Muskogee Crape Myrtle in the Fall of 2011. It didn't look like much when it arrived and due to the time of the year, quickly lost its leaves. My husband swore up and down that the ""twig"" in the front yard was dead. Well, lo and behold if it didn't flourish come springtime! It's grown several feet and bloomed beautifully in the summer. It's actually doing better than a more expensive crape myrtle purchased from a local nursery! I highly recommend this tree. You won't be disappointed

Thriving in the SW Florida sun!
I planted one of these trees on the bank of the canal in my backyard in April. It gets full sun pretty much all day and it appears to be very happy and growing well. It's gained 2 to 3 feet in height already.

One thing that puzzled me, though: it got a few flowers a couple of months a go, but the flowers were white instead of purple. Is it likely that when the tree gets older the flowers will be purple? Is it a nutrient issue? I did buy and use the special fertilizer and soil packages, so I'd think it would be getting all the nutrients it needs.

This was my first time ordering from Fast Growing Trees, and I was very impressed with the plants I received. They were in excellent shape on arrival and had been very nicely pruned. Considering the quality of their plants, I think the price is reasonable. Yes, I can get crepe myrtle cheaper at my local nursery. And, in fact, I did buy two crepe myrtle from them, in addition to the three I got from FGT. They are not doing as well, however. Since these are plants I intend to have for a long time, I think it's worth a little extra to get healthy, nicely pruned stock.

My wife and I ordered 3 trees from this site and all arrived in excellent condition and are growing well. One of our crape myrtles was incorrectly labeled, pam at fast growing trees had this problem fixed immediately and a new tree was on our doorstep within 2 days. We would never have received this care and respect from our local nursery.

Planting & Care



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


Muskogee Crape Myrtle Tree Planting Diretions Plant your Muskogee Crape Myrtle in an area that gets at least six hours of sunlight a day, this will give you the most flowers. For a privacy screen plant your Muskogee Crape Myrtle Trees about five feet apart.

Muskogee Crape Myrtle Trees will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Let your soil dry to the touch about two inches down in between waterings. Only give your Muskogee Crape extra water during times of drought.

Every Spring fertilize your Muskogee Crape Myrtle with a fertilizer that's high in nitrogen. Each summer your tree will give you the gift of beautiful lavender flowers that keep blooming into the fall. Once Fall comes around the corner the leaves on your Muskogee Crape will turn yellow and red.

Thomas S on Jul 3, 2016
Leaves started out this spring looking good. A week ago, I noticed a lot of the leaves folding up into like a cocoon. I would say 1/3 or the tree looks like that right now. It is a dark purple crepe myrtle and is about 6 years old. I do not see any bugs, webs and was wondering if something was causing the damage from the soil? I sprayed Ortho Bug and Insect liquid on them yesterday.

I'm curious about this particular tree. What I'm hesitant about is the root system for these trees. I was thinking of planing it within about 5' of both a concrete driveway and a sidewalk. Roughly how far does the root system extend from the tree (I'm assuming at least 15'.) I live in zone 8 around the Seattle area are these trees recommended for this zone. Lastly, the soil here is very rocky with tough clay soil...will this tree be able to handle it?
Larry V on Sep 22, 2014
Best Answer: Crape Myrtle trees have a noninvasive root structure. They're often planted within 5 feet of structures. They're also very tough and can tolerate a lot of different soil types, even if its rocky with a lot of clay. This tree sounds like it'd be perfect for your area, as long as your soil is well draining and it wouldn't get over watered.

I live in Atlanta GA how soon could I plant this tree?
Amy Y on Feb 15, 2015
Best Answer: April / May is the best time since that allows for longest time to take root. Oh, and ALWAYS use grub killer at least a 5-6' radius (10-12' coverage across) around the tree. Bayer makes the 24 hour killer which is real good. That'll save the roots from getting munched on.

Can I order the Muskogee lavender crepe myrtle in multi trunk?
Lynne A on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: They come with a single trunk; however, crape myrtles will try to multi-trunk whether you want them to or not. You could order a small one and in a few months to a year you'll have lots of new shoots that will become trunks if you let them.

Does this tree come as a single trunk?
A shopper on Jun 23, 2014
Best Answer: My tree is 6 ft. tall right now and it has a single trunk, and then it has the extentions growing like the picture. You have to trim the bottom extentions at around 3-4 months, and any branches that are too long, just the tips, so your tree is more full at the middle section and they grow out more full. I have flowers right now and it's beautiful. I have it in my front yard. it's a fast growing tree. If i didn't trim it down a little it would be taller all over and like a slim tall tree with just flower at the end of the branches, instead of a fuller more flowers on the tree. I think you made the right choice. they are growing wild in the state of CAROLINA, noth and south. They love california. sincerely, Mary Jubert

A shopper on Sep 3, 2014
Best Answer: There are several things it could need: more sun, fertilizer or pruning. When it comes to pruning a crape myrtle you do not want to do it too late in the season. That can cause new wood to be mistakenly removed, which will cause the buds to never develop.

Carrie S on Jul 22, 2016
Best Answer: As these trees get quite large I would definitely consult professionals in answer to your planting….as for privacy…these trees are "skinny" at the base & grow high from the ground & maybe not offer the density you are seeking….you also need to ask if they shed in the Fall in your area..therefore not adding any privacy during winter months…(However they are quite spectacular when in bloom & make a "big show"…Good Luck!!!

I bought a muskee gee from you 2 years ago and finally it is blooming but much to my dismay the flowers are white not purple or lavender as advertised. I really had planned on the promised color. Anything you can do except tell me to spray paint it.....?....?????
John C on Aug 20, 2015
Best Answer: Crape Myrtles can be moody when it comes to giving you the exact color you want. Many environmental factors affect the bloom color including over and under watering, incorrect planting, the soil pH and, of course, the sun. The most common issue affecting color mainly affects the red varieties like Red Rocket and Dynamite. They can bloom white or light pink on a cloudy day. This is because of the pigment anthocyanin. It is not activated without the presence of sun. Unfortunately there are not really any ways to get the exact color you want other than providing the best care you can. There is some evidence that if you correct an improper pH that that can help the plant be most likely to achieve the correct color.

When is the best time for Pruning?
James W on Jul 18, 2015
Best Answer: Hi James
You want to wait until your tree is dormant. In south carolina for instance, I prune my crape myrtles in February. The key to pruning is to prune no more than 10%. Criss crossing branches that reduce air circulation in the middle of the tree or a stray branch. Do not hack the whole thing back, this is very stressful to a tree. A very good sight for proper pruning techniques is www.Clemson.edu/extension.

Why won't some of my crepe myrtles bloom?
Joe P on Jun 27, 2015
Best Answer: That's a pretty broad question, but I'll say this. I have a number of them, and this past winter (I'm in NJ zone 6-7) really pounded them good. I lost one Rhapsody in Pink crape. My back yard Muskogee is now blooming. My front yard Musk hasn't. I have 2 Rhapsody crapes that survived one in near full bloom and one that's having trouble. Crape myrtles do pretty well in NJ, but they are slower due to the climate. Other issues may be not enough water / fertilizer. They really DO need a LOT of full sun, so anything less is going to hurt them. Plus I found that you have to wrap them with some kind of shield during the winter for newer crapes just to protect their trunks from cold damage, so I kept a treegator on and that worked well along with a heavy mound of mulch. This year I'm also going to wrap them with a clear painters tarp stuffed with fall leaves.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
