I bought 5 trees last year and scattered them across my large back yard. They were in excellent health when they arrived. The intense deep hot pink blossoms are dense and the burgundy tinged foliage adds to its overall beauty. This little sweetie brought color to my late season garden and continued right up to frost. No disappointment with this one. Im looking forward to their mature height and spread. Thanks Fast-Growing Trees. You found a keeper with Pink Velour.

I think anyone that purchases the Pink Velour will be very happy.
The blooms are big and beautiful. What I like about it is it's unique color. Very rarely do you see them in this vibrant color. I have three of them. People have commented on their beauty.

I have on Pink Velour tree in my back yard and one in the front. Both are stand alone. They both doubled in size - it was hard to believe that a tree from a box would be so hardy. I am very happy with my crape myrtle purchase.

Doing great, blooming great. Awesome! Love em. Ones doing better than the other, but theyre both terrific. Thanks
December 31, 2012
I have 3 of these beauties! This is their 2nd season! They were slow that first year but now! WOW! They are taking off like a jet plane! Making up for lost time! I go out every day to view all my crape myrtles ~ I have 7 ~~ and am surprise when I see another leaf starting to unfold that I jump for joy! Every one that walks by, stops to take a wonder!

Just planted this beautiful tree today
This tree arrived well packed and very much alive. I planted it a few hours ago in my front yard here in Mountain View, California. I feel like I've brought a piece of the South to my home. Everytime a guest or family walks along the path to my front door they'll be greeted by this crape myrtle.

I watered it well and look forward to it in the months and years ahead.

I purchased 2 pink velour crape myrtles -- getting into their 3rd year. I purchased the 3-4 ft tree and haven't grown at all. Love the color of bloom and foilage though. Can't wait til they really put out.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Pink Velour Crape

Pink Velour Crape Planting Diretions Place your Pink Velour Crape Myrtle tree that receives at least six hours of sunlight a day. Pink Velour Crapes prefer full sun but can tolerate shade. Plant your Pink Velour Crape Myrtles about five feet apart for a privacy screen.

Pink Velour Crape Myrtles prefer slightly acidic soil, but will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Only water your Crape Myrtle when your soil is dry to the touch. Crape Myrtles are very drought tolerant and only need water during dry periods.

Early every Spring fertilize your Pink Velour Crape Myrtle Tree with a slow release fertilizer that's high in nitrogen and prepare for the show. Vibrant pink blooms will emerge on your Pink Velour Crape Myrtle Tree in the Summer and last into the fall when the green leaves turn a dark orange color.

I vacation in Cape May, NJ each summer and always love looking at the hundreds (thousands?) of gorgeous crape myrtles there. Have always wanted my own. Adore this color and it's supposed to be very hardy. Can't wait to have a bit of the shore in my own yard!

Grew up in Tx. with abundant Crepe Myrtle fragrance and color. I'm thinking this winter will be mild enough for me to enjoy same in the spring and summer. Am now 81 and need more color in my life. Lost the pinks and purples to critters from my last order.

How do I plant a bare root crepe myrtle tree in late fall and do I water it in the winter?
A shopper on Aug 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I planted mine in the late fall, it will get an established root system if you do. I live in Seattle, so let nature do the watering, but my Peptol BIsmol pink tree (my name for it) is flourishing. I put two frozen fish steaks at the bottom, put some soil on top of that so the roots wouldn't freeze, and then planted the tree. In the spring, my little twig in the ground jumped three feet in one season, and this year it's going for another three ( I put fish emulsion and gypsum around it this year), this tree is a happy guy. All the other trees in the neighbor's backyards are just leaves, but mine is blooming along with my butterfly bush in bicolor {in August). I'm very happy with Peptol, just show yours the extra attention and it will take off beautifully.

How long does the roots get in this Crepe Myrtle. I have a septic tank within 10 feet of where I would plant and can't have something growing into the pipes?

I got my tree last year, but this year really look dead , how long I have to wait ? , to see leaves. I 'm in West Haven, Ct.
Judith R on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Our two pink velour crape myrtles looked totally dead twice in the first year and a half we had them. A friend who had some horticulural knowledge told us to wait a while. We waited, I don't recall exactly how long, and sure enough the leaves came back in spades. The trees are now two years old and doing very well -- even though ours is not a recommended area for crape myrtles.
when to plant ?
Jimmy M on Aug 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We planted in the heat of the summer. We did a lot of watering and it is doing great a year later.
What months do they bloom?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Late spring through early fall.
is it going to bloom now if I purchase it today?
simon o on Aug 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: When I planted mine in the fall, it had one branch bloom in the spring. That's it, but in August it bloomed all over. If you want it to bloom, plant a fish underneath it. When you first get the delivery, keep it in its pot for a week and get thru the shock of transportation, mine looked so freaked out that I kept it inside, then outside when it started to look normal, then planted it when it looked healthy enough. After your tree is established, you can put banana peels around the soil and that will help it bloom for an event. Works on my roses to get extra blooms.
Can I plant this beautiful tree in a container?
A shopper on Jul 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would not try it. I live in Florida and planted mine in the ground. Very seldom do you see them in containers. I purchased three of them and I just love them. Since my purchase I would say they have tripled in size and that is just one years growth.The color is so vibrant, very different from other colors you see.
how tall and wide do they get?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We planted four of these a year ago last January. They bloomed heavily last year and this year, and have grown from 24" to almost 6' in height. They are quite beautiful in flower and a modest shrub when not. Admittedly, we fertilize with fertilizer sticks about every four months so the growth we have experience is probably above normal. But we have been very happy with them although they are clearly more shrub oriented and from our experience (and limited trimming skills), will not make an attractive tree.
What months do they bloom?
Marilyn S on Jun 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is their Second season and the first time they are starting to BLOOM: It took a whole year to establish and now its worth the wait! I notice on June 1st the buds starting to unfold ~~ WOW! Am I Happy! This little beauty will Bloom ALL Summer Long ! I have three of these and every one that walks by Stops to take a look! For everybody has watched Mi re-landscape my yard over the past 6 years. I have 7 Crapes and they are positioned to shade the house in the HOT SUMMER Months. Plus I love when walkers Stop and look at the beauty of my Crapes.
Hi I live in cape may nj would it be better to plant in fall or early spring?
Michelle K on Sep 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would think that early spring would be better. That way it can establish itself before winter.
I live in growing zone 6. will this tree still do well where I live? I live in southern Illinois.
l.isa M on Apr 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My tree did well last year. Bloomed and grew a few inches. It is early yet (March) and I am waiting to see signs of its survival over the Winter which was not a hard one this year. Right now...no shoots or ?... sorry, lois
Is area 10 suitable for Pink Velour crape Mystle?
Walter L on Aug 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are. I am in Naples Fl and they are quite prevalent down here.
I live in the suburbs north of Philadelphia, (Bucks County) Pennsylvania. Will the Pink Velour Crape do well in my area? I would like to plant in the entrance island of my neighborhood.
Melnaie B on Jul 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Dear Melanie, I wanted to send you a lengthy description of my experience with Crape Myrtle but the space given to me by"Fast-Growing-Trees" does not allow me to do so. I live in the Hartford area in Connecticut where the climate zone is 6, which is colder than the recommended 7 to 9 for Crape Myrtle, so there is a great risk that in your area in a similar zone you will have a problem after a harsh winter as we had in 2014/15. The mature wood dies but not the plant itself which grows again from the roots, However, in that case, it is not likely that your shrub will bloom in that season. If the following winter is a mild one, you might have a beautiful blooming shrub next summer. This has happened to me two years in a row in 2012 and 2013. So, again, there is a serious risk that you will have this problem unless we have milder winters in the future. Otherwise, when the crapes bloom, they are absolutely gorgeous and exactly like the pictures in the catalogs. The Company that asked me to write you is very respectable. If you decide to buy a crape myrtle, select a well sheltered full sun exposure. I wish you good luck, Erick
EMILEE C on May 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We planted it when it was dormant and it began sprouting leaves in days. We water it every other day and it's been 4 months. It has grown only a few inches. Hope this answers the question.
A shopper on Aug 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I just planted it with the mix they sell and in late July or early August I watered it with a bloom booster from Miracle Grow.
When is the best time to plant this tree in long island, NY?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Im from Queens, NY and planted one of these babies last summer and it has grown wonderfully!
Why is the bark pealing and dropping off the trunk of the tree?
A shopper on Jul 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that is one of the neat characteristics of the Pink Velour myrtle trees, nothing to be worried about.
How do they do with lots of wind? I want to get this for my mother but it's really windy. Would it survive in Logan Utah?
Heather G on Sep 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't know how it will do with lots of wind. Our place is pretty windy but it doesn't get extremely strong gusts. I think it will do well with support posts on both sides. Our tree is growing straight.
Can the crape myrtle be pruned so that the do not exceed 7 feet?
marie d on Jun 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can, and the branches will fill in to give it a fuller appearance.
