We received our Muskogee Crape Myrtle in the Fall of 2011. It didn't look like much when it arrived and due to the time of the year, quickly lost its leaves. My husband swore up and down that the ""twig"" in the front yard was dead. Well, lo and behold if it didn't flourish come springtime! It's grown several feet and bloomed beautifully in the summer. It's actually doing better than a more expensive crape myrtle purchased from a local nursery! I highly recommend this tree. You won't be disappointed

I got this tree about 2 months ago. It wasn't very impressive to look at but I planted it and just hoped for the best. My not so attractive little stick has blossomed into a beautiful lavender spectacle! I never dreamed it would have blossoms so soon and I absolutely LOVE this tree!

My wife and I ordered 3 trees from this site and all arrived in excellent condition and are growing well. One of our crape myrtles was incorrectly labeled, pam at fast growing trees had this problem fixed immediately and a new tree was on our doorstep within 2 days. We would never have received this care and respect from our local nursery.

Thriving in the SW Florida sun!
I planted one of these trees on the bank of the canal in my backyard in April. It gets full sun pretty much all day and it appears to be very happy and growing well. It's gained 2 to 3 feet in height already.

One thing that puzzled me, though: it got a few flowers a couple of months a go, but the flowers were white instead of purple. Is it likely that when the tree gets older the flowers will be purple? Is it a nutrient issue? I did buy and use the special fertilizer and soil packages, so I'd think it would be getting all the nutrients it needs.

This was my first time ordering from Fast Growing Trees, and I was very impressed with the plants I received. They were in excellent shape on arrival and had been very nicely pruned. Considering the quality of their plants, I think the price is reasonable. Yes, I can get crepe myrtle cheaper at my local nursery. And, in fact, I did buy two crepe myrtle from them, in addition to the three I got from FGT. They are not doing as well, however. Since these are plants I intend to have for a long time, I think it's worth a little extra to get healthy, nicely pruned stock.

I ordered two of these. But was expecting very small trees. It said 3-4 feet tall including root ball. I was shocked when I got home and saw a 7 foot tall box with the trees in them. Can't wait to get them planted today ! Easily would of cost hundreds of dollars at our local garden store !

Muskogee Crape
The tree I received was healthy and ready to plant. Muskogee Crapes grow quickly and their roots grow rapidly as well. They bloom all summer long! The only negative was it was a little younger than I expected for the price.

I received my order of a Muskogee Crape, and I am amazed how quickly it is growing. I read other customers reviews and they were right. This tree grows very quickly! I had leaves within a couple of days. It is fun watching it grow. June will definitely be rewarding with this tree. Happy growing

The purple crape myrtle came packaged so good to our house. We were a little worried about how it would arrive, but you put our fears to rest and we will be ordering more trees from you in the near future. Our crape myrtle is blooming so much already and weve only had it a few months. Its such a beautiful tree! Thank you so much for providing them to the public

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Muskogee Crape Myrtle Tree

Muskogee Crape Myrtle Tree Planting Diretions Plant your Muskogee Crape Myrtle in an area that gets at least six hours of sunlight a day, this will give you the most flowers. For a privacy screen plant your Muskogee Crape Myrtle Trees about five feet apart.

Muskogee Crape Myrtle Trees 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 about two inches down in between waterings. Only give your Muskogee Crape extra water during times of drought.

Every Spring fertilize your Muskogee Crape Myrtle with a fertilizer that's high in nitrogen. Each summer your tree will give you the gift of beautiful lavender flowers that keep blooming into the fall. Once Fall comes around the corner the leaves on your Muskogee Crape will turn yellow and red.

Ethel M on Mar 22, 2017
Leaves started out this spring looking good. A week ago, I noticed a lot of the leaves folding up into like a cocoon. I would say 1/3 or the tree looks like that right now. It is a dark purple crepe myrtle and is about 6 years old. I do not see any bugs, webs and was wondering if something was causing the damage from the soil? I sprayed Ortho Bug and Insect liquid on them yesterday.

lenore j on May 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Lenore this is Sammy jean my neighbor who has three crape myrtles in his yard says that crape myrtles do get cocoon looking things on them and then they open and offer you seed.
I'm curious about this particular tree. What I'm hesitant about is the root system for these trees. I was thinking of planing it within about 5' of both a concrete driveway and a sidewalk. Roughly how far does the root system extend from the tree (I'm assuming at least 15'.) I live in zone 8 around the Seattle area are these trees recommended for this zone. Lastly, the soil here is very rocky with tough clay soil...will this tree be able to handle it?
Larry V on Sep 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Crape Myrtle trees have a noninvasive root structure. They're often planted within 5 feet of structures. They're also very tough and can tolerate a lot of different soil types, even if its rocky with a lot of clay. This tree sounds like it'd be perfect for your area, as long as your soil is well draining and it wouldn't get over watered.
Can I order the Muskogee lavender crepe myrtle in multi trunk?
Lynne A on May 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They come with a single trunk; however, crape myrtles will try to multi-trunk whether you want them to or not. You could order a small one and in a few months to a year you'll have lots of new shoots that will become trunks if you let them.
I live in Atlanta GA how soon could I plant this tree?
Amy Y on Feb 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: April / May is the best time since that allows for longest time to take root. Oh, and ALWAYS use grub killer at least a 5-6' radius (10-12' coverage across) around the tree. Bayer makes the 24 hour killer which is real good. That'll save the roots from getting munched on.
Can I still order if I live in zone 6?
grmmie47 on Jun 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can, however, it is not recommended for a zone 6 so we cannot put a warranty on the tree. Sadly zone 6 gets a little too cold for this tree.
will this tree lose leaves in the winter ( zone 10 ) and will nit tolerate wet feet ( soil ) ? Thank you
Michael S on Jun 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The tree will lose it's leaves in the winter. My soil is not real wet so I am not sure I can answer that question. It is very beautiful though. I am really glad I bought it. It is very healthy.
If I get this and have it planted by Memorial day, will I see flowers this year?
Betty on May 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: no...this is NOT a fast-growing tree...not from these folks and not if smaller size is purchased
will crape myrtles spead into multiple trees?
A shopper on Jun 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is a common characteristic for Crape Myrtles to have multiple trunks, but they don't spread like weeds or multiply. You can transplant cuttings from your own tree though.
when can i trim all the shoots from around the bottom of the tree?
stan g on Jun 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I always trim all of mine off as they pop up. I have only allowed my Muskogee's to have about 3 tree trunks and I trim all the other off as I see them. I bought my trees 2 years ago at about 4ft tall and they are now about 10-12 ft tall and doing great!
Can I plant this tree now, (October) or do I need to wait for the spring? I am in Los Angeles, CA.
Dodonna B on Oct 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: What is your fall weather in Los Angeles? In Columbia SC our weather is in the mid 70's and mid 50's at night. I have planted many crepe myrtles In the fall here so u are not tied to the hose keeping them watered in the 100 degree summers
I would like to plant a row of these for privacy in my front yard. How far apart should they be spaced? How far from the fence and from my property line? Thanks in advance!
Carrie S on Jul 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As these trees get quite large I would definitely consult professionals in answer to your planting….as for privacy…these trees are "skinny" at the base & grow high from the ground & maybe not offer the density you are seeking….you also need to ask if they shed in the Fall in your area..therefore not adding any privacy during winter months…(However they are quite spectacular when in bloom & make a "big show"…Good Luck!!!
Can this tree be a container tree?
Britany on Apr 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Crape Myrtles prefer to be planted in the ground. If you want to put it in a container I would say it needs to be at least 30 gallons.
Zone 7 -if ordered in in January, what can I do with it until spring ?
carol n on Jan 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can keep it in a container in a dark room like a garage or shed that stays around 60 degrees until you're ready to plant. Just make sure the roots don't dry out. However, if your ground isn't frozen you can go ahead and plant your tree.
I live in Seattle - there are many zones in my area - zones 7 - 11. My zip code comes up at zone 8. Would this plant grow here? I don't see too many crate myrtle trees. Thanks.
Christie N on Sep 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you are within the recommended growing zone for a Muskogee.
what color are the leaves during the fall before falling, is that the second picture on the page? I am looking for fall color since we live in a area that is all pine trees
Amy B on Oct 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Orange red, leave berries on . They look great all winter. This is a gorgeous, fast growing tree in coastal south carolina. Needs very little shaping and should be allowed to grow big (no crape murder!)
Does this tree come as a single trunk?
A shopper on Jun 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My tree is 6 ft. tall right now and it has a single trunk, and then it has the extentions growing like the picture. You have to trim the bottom extentions at around 3-4 months, and any branches that are too long, just the tips, so your tree is more full at the middle section and they grow out more full. I have flowers right now and it's beautiful. I have it in my front yard. it's a fast growing tree. If i didn't trim it down a little it would be taller all over and like a slim tall tree with just flower at the end of the branches, instead of a fuller more flowers on the tree. I think you made the right choice. they are growing wild in the state of CAROLINA, noth and south. They love california. sincerely, Mary Jubert
When can I plant that tree Muskogee crape?

Is this tree fragrant and is it safe for animals to be on I have cats that will be climbing and playing on it?
Sandra A on Jan 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No it is not fragrant that I have noticed. As far as I know it should be safe for your cats. My inside/outside cat lies under mine all the time during the warm weather.
will this tree grow in westfield, n.y ?
Lois D on Apr 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I doubt it very much, according to the chart you are not even close to the "Growing Zone". I bought three because where I live (Long Island) is just inside the "Growing Zone". I planted them in spring and seemed fine but they didn't make it through the winter. Fast growing trees replaced them all and I replanted them late spring. I'm waiting to see if they start budding soon. I hope that helps
Is the Muskogee Crape tree bare in the winter? what does it look like when not in bloom? thanks.
Beulah C on Mar 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In MA it gets a little thin during brutal winters. Comes back quick. We are very pleased. Usually hangs in there for the bulk of it unlike all our other shrubs.
Are these trees messy?
Urs's trees on Jan 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, thse are not messy trees. They grow a little slow, but are nice flowering trees
have a lavender grape ,planted 3 summers ago had bliooms when planted but hasn/t bloomed since then should I trim the tree?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There are several things it could need: more sun, fertilizer or pruning. When it comes to pruning a crape myrtle you do not want to do it too late in the season. That can cause new wood to be mistakenly removed, which will cause the buds to never develop.
when is he best time to plant?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm in zone 10 and the best time to plant is the fall.planted my tree in November,
it is two years old now and is absolutely beautiful and fast growing.
it arrived very well packaged and healthy.
I live in an area, where the deer think my yard is a salad bar, is this tree deer resistant? I would like to let it grow as more of a bush and be able to trim it regularly to use the foliage and flowers for my floral design business. If the deer are always trimming if for me, than that won't be an option. :-)
Laurie H on Oct 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live in an area that have a very small deer population. Haven't had an issue with them. The tree is growing nicely.
I need a tree for shade and privacy for a townhouse. Might be 12ft from house to sidewalk.. Will this tree work? and what about planting now in SEPT OCT??
Kim D on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought a small tree like this and planted it in the spring. It's really grown a lot. I've planted other kinds of trees in the fall and have never had a problem. I wouldn't hesitate planting it. As far as whether it will fit in your yard check the stats on the Web page to see how big it will get. I don't remember but the website will explain all that. Fast growing trees was wonderful. The tree arrived quickly and in good shape. Hope this helps.
I live in Northwets Arkansas. I am planning to get two trees for my front house. Whe is a good time to plant them? Thanks
Andreina B on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can plant them anytime; however, if you plant in the hot summer you will need to make sure you water consistently. I usually plant in fall or spring.

Hi I have my muskogee crape myrtle planted in the center of a circle that I did out of retaining wall blocks and I filled it with screened top soil which is a really moist dirt. Will my muskogee crape myrtle be okay? How often should I water it being that I have it in moist soil that will eventually drain?
Sammy jean on Apr 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have two of them, one in circle like yours, only getting sufficient water from lawn sprinkler, the other one I water deeply once a week which is working great so far.Love them!
can this tree grow next to a fence considering it's multi trunk, can it be trimmed as single trunk?
Laney H on Apr 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We planted ours next to a fence but it's very slow growing in MA. I would say it's kind of the luck of the draw if you get one with a strait trunk. It can be done.
