Height:

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.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Pink Velour Crape can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring. 

How do I Request a Different Ship Date?

Call us at 888-504-2001, email us or enter your requested ship date in our shopping cart next to the billing information section. 

Additional Info for Those Who Love to Read:

Orders are occasionally delayed if we see really bad weather approaching, or if we encounter unusual circumstances. A small number of our plants show a specific release date. If you purchase one of these and would like your other items sooner, just let us know.

It's Easy to Plant your Pink Velour Crape


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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 Pink Velour 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 Pink Velour 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.

Doing great, blooming great. Awesome! Love em. Ones doing better than the other, but theyre both terrific. Thanks!

By: Gail in Grand Junction, CO
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.

By: Patty in Manasquan, NJ
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.

By: Gail Lippy
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.

By: Josiah
I planted my Pink Velour crape late October 2011. It is doing fine this year. It has not grown much. A few branches and some pretty leaves. It's a beautiful tree. I will order more from fast growing trees.

By: Reva Fletcher
I got 2 of these about 2 months ago. They are starting to bloom already and I love the bright pink color. They are full of buds so I can't wait to see how they look in full bloom. I couldn't be happier with them!

By: Lisa Lugo
i am disappointed. The tree is OK, quite small and not too perky. They didn't have them in the store when I ordered this but since then for this price I could get a much taller and more mature tree with lots of flowers already on it. I feel like I wasted my money. I hope my tree grows quickly, been about five weeks and no growth yet.

By: LadySally
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! TKU for my trees!

By: Tina
My tree arrived much smaller than anticipated, and was practically dead. I planted it and hoped that it was just in hibernation as customer service assured me it was. Despite following all planting and care instructions, the tree never did grow, and was in fact - dead.

By: Sabine J
This little tree is growing very fast, it bloomed in its first year. Definitely a winner

Do you cut the tree back in the late fall , had to cut mine down it was dead, little ones coming up around trunk ????
A shopper on Jun 21, 2014
Best Answer: I only cut back bottom branches. There are little chutes coming up around the trunk. I haven't touched them yet, but I plan on removing them soon, my tree was tiny when I bought it last year. It's growing and blooming beautifully .

A shopper on Jun 26, 2014
Best Answer: PERHAPS but I doubt it. The two I planted last June did not do well. our winter was for our area was harsh. Questions for self, planted deep enough, fertilize, etc, etc. there was not any large branches with life, but small ones ??. to my surprise each tree NOW has one or two 'hardy' looking shoots about 6 inches. Hope this helps. jerZ

Will the roots invade my sewer lines?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: No, they have very good roots but I've never had a problem with that particular problem. I have two bushes in my front yard and my sewer lines aren't that far away so all is well as far as the Crape Myrtles go. Glad I was able to help!!

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.

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.

Would this do well with the winters of Northern Ky.? I see where on person in New Jersey said they have 2 of these that are doing well.

Best Answer: The pink Velour Crape isn't recommended for Kentucky. The climate there isn't suited for it. It's recommend for growing zones 7 - 10 which New Jersey falls in.
