The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better results the first full growing season.

Imagine – an incredible 110 continuous days of flower power! The Natchez will delight you with hundreds of delicate, cooling white flowers from June to September. 

The Natchez Crape Myrtle is a best seller, made so popular by being a fast growing tree that blooms all summer long. 

With this lovely tree in your yard you will soon join the thousands who swear by its value as an ornamental tree.

The Natchez Crape grows very rapidly at 3-5 feet a year and is tolerant of many climates. The pure white blooms will explode in brilliance against the tree’s deep green leafy canopy. 

A Natchez Crape Myrtle also gives you the unusual bark coloring of cinnamon on the trunk and stems, along with its smooth, sleek distinctive texture. This coloring gives you great winter interest with a brightness not found in most other trees during the cold season. 

When you order from Fast Growing Trees, you can be confident that you will receive a crape myrtle with a well-developed root structure able to support rapid growth. 

Natchez is successfully grown in zones 7-10 – an exceptionally wide temperature range for crape myrtles. 

Between the long bloom period and the fact that it is much more tolerant of extreme heat and cold than its cousins, the Natchez Crape Myrtle is an ideal candidate for specimen tree placement in landscapes over a huge part of the US.

It's Easy to Plant your Natchez Crape


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

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.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Natchez Crape 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 Natchez Crape again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

My(2) trees were planted two years ago, on each side of a fountain, against a fence and about 10 feet apart. They now form a canopy of 20 feet wide and 8-10 feet tall.Each bloom is 6 inches across and the trees are covered, in full bloom by the 4th of July.

Bernie's Dead Trees
The first time I received the trees, they were the wrong ones and one died. You replaced them for me and I really appreciate that but out of the second batch, one died. I guess I thought the trees would be a bit easier to grow. I planted them right away, watered them, fed them, talked to them, you name it, I did it and they keep dying. I usually don't have problems with my plants and trees dying. Maybe you can offer some advice?

Natchez Crape Myrtle Tree
The growth and hardiness of this tree is unbelievable. We were somewhat skeptical about a tree in a box. We planted the tree with our friends as a tribute to a friend who passed away this year. He loved Crapes and now so do we and plan to purchase more to plant in our yards. Thank You

Bloomed Already!
I was pleasantly surprised with the crape myrtle we ordered online. I must admit I was skeptical--who orders a tree online, right? But I wanted to give it a try since finding certain varieties in a give area is difficult. The tree arrived looking like a dead stick, but after planting it this spring, it budded leaves and actually bloomed its first season in the ground! We were amazed and very pleased with the service from Fast-Growing Trees. Prompt, packaged well and great overall experience!

The tree grew at first then went dormant for winter. Thought it was dead. Then in March or soon after it started growing green stems and in July or August it actually bloomed a little. It is about four foot wide and five ft tall. You were right about it growing fast and easy. Also, doesnt use much water thats great. It looks very healthy and green right now. Looking forward to next year. Will need to prune off the bottom branches soon to encourage growth upward and a neatness look. A little bushy now. Thanks, very happy with it

We live in an area where the soil is fairly poor in north Texas. I have been searching for trees that will thrive without much care and this tree has surpassed all the others. Love the beautiful blossoms in July. I was surprised when this tree, just about 2 feet tall bloomed so beautifully!

I have to disagree with the fast growth that is touted by this company. I planted mine six years ago, and it is finally about 6.5 ft. tall. Since it's purported to grow 3-5 ft a year, mine is certainly an under achiever. It should be at least 18 feet tall by now! It does flower for quite a while, so I'm happy with that. I also bought a Red Dynamite at the same time. I kept it for 3 years than removed it, because it looked like a dead twig for 9 months a year

first summer
Arrived in a huge box, looked like a birch cluster! It started pushing out leaves very late in the spring, we thought it was practically dead! Then suddenly - lots of green! A scorching hot summer hasn't burnt the leaves but required watering at least every other morning as we've had no rain for weeks and weeks in Seattle. We've fenced it in this year, to protect it from deers as we have them roaming our property at times.

It is receiving adequate water we just had the threat of Erica storm which was just a great rain fall and winds for about three days. I am excited to watch her grow into this beautiful tree. I am extremely pleased so far.

Natchez Crape Myrtle growing like a weed
Purchased a several-year-old sapling a few months ago and planted it in a north facing bed in our enclosed courtyard with lots of compost and a thick layer of mulch. It gets about 8 hours of mid-day sun with early morning and late afternoon shade. It has almost doubled in height from 5' to 9', put on dozens of new stems and has more than 40 flower heads in bloom or bud. The base of the 1.5" trunk has already started to do that lovely peeling thing that Crape Myrtles do. It has been a very wet growing season this year but if it hasn't rained, made sure it got an inch of water a week. Plan to mulch it thickly for the cold season, but with the robust adaptation it has already shown, fully expect it will do fine through the winter and become a beautiful feature in the garden for years to come.

I purchased 2 Natchez 20years ago and they were approx. 7' tall. I planted them in I'd guess an 80% sun area. Now with their height they are at least 22' tall, in full sun,and have a canopy of maybe 15'. They are beautiful and require only shaping of the lower branches. Crepe myrtle is my favorite tree as I have several others, some Natchez besides these two and others of varying colors. Great tree!!!

When is the best time to prune?
Betty M on Jul 31, 2014
Best Answer: Lite pruning -anytime to get rid of damaged or unsightly growth or to fill a flower vase! After blooming is finished and seed pods form, medium branches can safely be removed. Complete re-shaping should wait until colder season is upon us and saps are going down. Any heavy pruning may affect quantity of Spring blooms.

how old does the natchez need to be before it is pruned. Do the blooms have a fragrance?
Mildred J on Jul 18, 2014
Best Answer: The Natchez Crape's fragrance isn't as strong as the Magnolia's or Gardenia's. The Natchez Crape scent is very soft and mild. You can prune your Natchez Crape a year after it's first planted. They need a year to get established then respond very well to being pruned back.

If still unsure, plant at least 3-4 feet from foundation and avoid putting directly under gutter drip lines, electrical or bracing lines, or any element that may detract from mature beauty or require excess pruning.

Best Answer: The Natchez crape is a white bloomer, sometimes however in the first young years the little pod that pops put the bloom can be a maroon color, so when it first buds out the inner ring of the bloom may appear to be a tad pink. But the larger petals should be white.

Leaves in winter?

Best Answer: No leaves in winter months. It sheds and is bare until spring.

When is the best time of year to plant this tree in SW Florida? I thought I had read that winter was best. Is this true. Want one for a memorial tree for a child.

Best Answer: The best time to plant the Natchez Crape Myrtle is in the early Spring or early Fall. If your temperatures aren't scorching hot in the 90's or above you can go ahead and plant this tree now. The Natchez Crape is a very heat and drought tolerant tree though, so if you don't want to wait to plant it with the proper TLC and water it will grow just fine.

Will my Trees 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.





Most Trees 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.
