Red Rocket trees are easy to grow. They are highly drought resistant and require only average amounts of water once established.

Your new tree has a well developed root structure that will support rapid growth.

It's Easy to Plant your Red Rocket Crape Myrtle

Specific Directions for Red Rocket Crape Myrtle
Plant your Red Rocket Crape Myrtle in an area that receives at least six hours of sunlight a day. Crape Myrtles can tolerate shade, but prefer full sun. Make sure that your Red Rocket Crape Myrtle doesn't sit in a low area that collects standing water. Plant your Red Rocket Crape Myrtles at least five feet apart for a hedge or privacy screen.

Red Rocket Crape Myrtles 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 down about two inches in between waterings. Crape Myrtles are drought tolerant and will only need extra water during absence of rainfall.

Fertilize your Red Rocket Crape Myrtle early every Spring with a fertilizer that's high in nitrogen and prepare for the show. Red flowers start blooming every summer and last into the Fall when the green leaves turn a bronze red. The blooms start off light and get darker as the season progresses.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Red Rocket 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 Red Rocket Crape Myrtle 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.

red rocket crepe myrtle
I received the red rocket crepe myrtle in late June 2014. It arrived in excellent condition and was very healthy. I planted it immediately and within 3 weeks it was blooming. I live in Rochester, N.Y. in an area that is allocated as Zone 6. I plan on mulching it heavily this fall and will give it winter protection. I am hoping that it will survive our winter here since it is suppose to be able to live in Zone 6. I will write another review in the Spring of 2015 letting anyone who is interested know if it survived the winter and in what condition it is in.

Our 3 trees arrived in excellent condition and were planted approximately 2 months ago. They have survived a drought and are thriving! I did not expect blooms the first year, but one tree is in full bloom already, and the other two are almost there. I couldn't be happier with these trees thus far. The blooms are more pink than red, but I'm not disappointed

Beautiful blooms!
This is a great flowering crape myrtle and the blooms last a really long time once they start coming. Because I live in the Northeast, my plants were slow to green up and I thought they had died. We had a wickedly cold winter. One of them did die so I ordered two more. I put them in pots and plan to bring them inside during the cold and ice of the winter here. I may plant them outside in the spring if they survive the move indoors this winter. I love them and will keep trying to find ways to keep them living.

I got one of these back in the spring and kept it watered this summer. It had a lot of blooms on it for its first summer.The only thing I noticed was that they are more pink than red. Does anyone if it gets more red the older it gets or did they send me the wrong Crape?

Update to previous review
As an update to my Dec. 31, 2012 review under the name of "South", my 3 trees did not completely survive last years winter (which wasn't typical of south central Illinois - and we had even placed extra mulch around the trees in the fall as extra protection). No new growth appeared on the branches by springtime this year. One trunk was so dry that it broke off in a storm. However, by summer, new sprouts were growing around the original tree trunks (all 3 trunks and branches were dead and had to be cut down). I'm a little disappointed because now instead of having 3 trees, we have 3 bushes, and with the growth now present, I don't think I will be able to train any of the new branches to grow as a tree. They do look healthy though, but with such late growth this year, we did not see any blooms like last summer. Not a complete loss, but I'm afraid we won't have the trees I had envisioned.

Red Rocket Crepe Myrtle
I am a very pleased customer of Fast Growing Trees! We recently purchased 6 Rocket Red Crepe Myrtles and though one of them died the other 5 are doing great. The trees arrived on time and in good condition. The trees are only 8 weeks old but they are already generating dark red blooms. They are planted where they get maximum sun and we put in a small bubbler sprinkler system to keep them watered properly. FGT extended a gift certificate to us for the tree which we plan on using to replace the Rocket Red and will purchase additional white Crepe Myrtles in the near future.

Red Rocket Crape Myrtle is Amazing!
The red rocket crape myrtle arrived in excellent condition. I followed the planting instructions exactly and placed it in a ceramic planter on my deck. After the tree got adjusted to it's new home (about 3 weeks), it took off and has grown nearly 1 foot in only 2 months! I can't wait until next year to see it bloom.

Planted it in March on the day it showed up. Has grown at least two feet and has hundreds of beautiful red blooms already and it is only mid July. Planted in full sun and intend to use it for a privacy screen along my back fence. I needed something that would not grow into the power lines as the city will trim trees that are too big and too close (I planted it about 10 feet in front of the lines). Has not gone through a winter season yet here in Boise but we fall into Zone 6 so I am hopeful it will make it. So far I could not be happier with my purchase.

We are delighted with the Red Rocket Crape Myrtle we ordered from you. It was in excellent condition. We potted it right away and it is still looking good. We can't wait for it to bloom to get the full effect.

What is the root system like? How deep and/or far out do the roots spread? We have underground utilities and drainage pipes that I'm concerned about in the area I'd like to plant these.
Val D on Apr 26, 2015
Best Answer: Crepe Myrtles are small trees, and their root systems are correspondingly small. If you keep your Crepe Myrtle at least 10 feet from your underground lines, you should be fine.

Live in Zone 5, couple hundred miles north of Kansas City. Will the trees even have a chance to live in NE? Even if I add extra mulch to protect them. Will be planted on the south side of the house if that matters.
Scott P on Jan 25, 2015
Best Answer: You would be really pushing Mother Nature to try to grow crape Myrtles in zone 5. You can grow one in a pot, especially one of the smaller ones, like the dwarf Strawberry Dazzle, and bring it into a cool place for the winter, or you can consider planting a different summer-flowering shrub, such as Hydrangea Endless Summer or and Oakleaf Hydrangea, or a Buddliea like Black Knight, all of which should do fine in your zone 5 climate.

Leaves on my little tree turn red and got dark spots and falling!I planted in April in New York and now it's June. Tree don't have any growth what should I do?
Sasha on Jun 4, 2015
Best Answer: I planted three of these in zone 6 in late April 2015 and I think I should have waited until the weather warmed a bit. We had a lot of wind which didn't seem to help. However, it's now early July 2015 and the trees seem to have recovered after what I thought was their demise when their leaves seemed to start drying up and I thought they'd never grow. Sounds like mine went through the same type of shock that yours have had. All three went through what seemed to be a dormancy for over a month and then all three simultaneously started a new leafing cycle when all the old leaves dropped and were replaced with a lot of new growth and now they've got flowers budding. I had called FGT customer service and reported that I thought they were dying just so it was logged in their system in case things went south fast but I'm glad I didn't need to call them again. Now I just hope they can get through the winter.

can a red rocket crape myrtle be pruned to maintain a certain height of 10-15 feet?
William C on Jun 30, 2015
Best Answer: Red Rocket naturally grows to 20-30 feet tall, and you can keep it pruned to half that size., because crepe Myrtles will take a lot of pruning. However we recommend you consider a tree that will naturally grow closer to the size you want! Tonto matures to 8-15 feet, and has huge bloom heads of fuchsia to red (the more sun, the more red in the blooms) and would require little to no pruning to maintain at the size you desire.

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.

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.
