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.

Yes... Your Strawberry Dazzle Crape Myrtle 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.

It's Easy to Plant your Strawberry Dazzle Crape Myrtle

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

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 Strawberry Dazzle 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 Strawberry Dazzle 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.

I moved 3 miniature crepe myrtles this spring when I bought this house because they were planted too close together (no room at all between them) They're about 2 feet tall and never got any leaves this year. They're still alive because if I scratch the bark it's green. What should I do?

Is this tree good for upstate NY? About 1 1/2 hrs. From NYC I can't tell from your map

Best Answer: I live in the NW section on Ohio and due to the unusual cold weather we had last winter, unfortunately I lost that plant. My zone is 6, which is pushing it for that plant, I've read articles that it will do well if you have a normal winter but that doesn't seem to happen much lately. I. Even though i'd love to have that plant, I'm not going to risk it again, also their warranty is only good for 30 days. I called to see if they would take care of it but informed me of that. Most places cover their plants for one growing season or a year, which I've found one that has that plant and it's cheaper!!!!
