Tons of vibrant pink blooms!

Pink Velour Crape Myrtles™ are perfect as impressive ornamental trees or colorful, living privacy screens.

This unique tree will definitely attract attention as the centerpiece of your property. Pink Velour Crape Myrtles proudly display delicate pink blooms that last for months... giving your lawn a burst of color and delightful curb appeal.

Growing to a spread of 8-10 feet, plant them 4-5 feet apart for a natural solution to screening or as a desirable property divider. Also works well planted near your foundation.

Liven up your kitchen with beautiful cut floral arrangements from your Pink Velour Crape Myrtle. They look and smell wonderful!

What an easy tree to plant and grow! It's highly mildew resistant and drought tolerant, so you can plant it and forget it.

These trees are easy to care for and a delight to watch.


Although Crape Myrtles are very well suited for hot and humid environments, a long summer can still take its toll on the leaves, especially in a nursery setting. The leaves may be showing some signs of stress, such as discoloration, or possibly even some signs of fungus. Any concern would have been treated before the trees left our nursery, but the discoloration will still show on the leaves. The trees will go dormant soon and the discolored leaves will fall. Once the trees are planted in an open location they will not exhibit these symptoms again in the spring.

Plants are healthy but small and not many branches
I have ordered 4 different plants, out of four plants, one is gardenia and rest are Crape Mrytles. Crape Mrytles are not as I have expected. I thought plants will have more branches and with a decent size. And one Crape Mrytle's leaves is having holes all over the plant. May be bug eaten holes.
However I have planted them on the same day of arrival. Shipping was satisfactory and arrived on time.

Strong & Gorgeous Tree!
I am writing this review a little over a year after puchasing my tree. When I received my Pink Velour Crape Myrtle I was pleasantly surprised! I ordered the smaller size but what I got was larger than I expected! There was no damage and it looked very healthy. There were no flowers on it but the leaves were dark and had a lovely sheen. Unlike most other reviews I read, I decided to order and plant my tree in the Fall instead of the Spring so that it could develop a strong root system. I was in no rush to see it flower. As soon as I planted it, it went into shock...or maybe to sleep because the leaves became dull and started falling off due to the cooler weather. I didn't worry, I just trusted the process and somehow knew it was fine. My little tree survived through ice, snow and high winds during the winter. I saw the first signs of life on Easter Sunday! Tiny buds emerging from the branches! Week by week it became fuller and more beautiful. When the flowers finally started to bloom, the color was magnificent! So eye catching. Don't listen to people who says it looks like peptol bismol lol. The color is unique. You dont often see this particular shade of pink on trees. It definitely turns heads where i live. It's gorgeous and will be a joyful addition to your garden. My tree flowered about 3 times during the season. I am in zone 7. When I purchased my tree from Fast Growing Trees I also purchased their fertilizer and tree steaking kit to keep my tree from being blown over during the winter. I live in an urban area where there isn't much space to garden and most people don't really care but I wanted to bring life and color to my home so I use what little soil space I have, that's why this tree is perfect. It won't grow too large but it will offer massive beauty and color! I've added some pictures with my review. By the way, I am a novice Gardner so my apologies for not adding more technical details about the planting process. I just followed the directions provided by Fast Growing Trees aside from a bit of research on line before purchasing. I also plant according to the phases of the moon and this seems to work wonders for me. My Pink Velour is accompanied by 2 bartzella peonies and 1 Pink Hawaiian Coral peony.

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.

Chose this based on color and height seems suitable for my garden.
Tipawan B on Sep 23, 2018
This tree is awesome - grows fast and it's beautiful! The leaves look so shiny and healthy it almost looks like it has a wax coating. I planted it in October and after "sleeping" for a few months it exploded in spring/summer. I came back to buy two more and I just wish I have bought 3 at the same time since now I'll have one that is older/taller than the others.I looked and purchased other Crape Myrtles and this is by far the best. Easy choice if you're looking at Crape Myrtles.

BEST ANSWER: Hello,

I'm not an expert but mine seem to be doing well in full sun. Not too much water. Maybe some mulch to control the water. You may want to not use too much verterlize and when it's time to fertilize use something like a vigoro product etc.

Thx
Is this a single trunk or multiple trunked tree?
H L on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Our Crape Myrtle trees are multi trunk.
I have a stump removed. Can I plant in the same place?
chris p on Aug 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you have a stump that has been totally removed ensuring that the roots are at least 90% removed, it should be no problem. It would probably depend alot of what had been previously planted there to make sure that this is the case and that you have at least a 2 to 3 ft radius of clean ground.
I have a 5 foot circular planter area surrounded by cement. Will the roots typically lie close to surface causing the cement to lift? If so, is there any way to avoid this?

Walter L on Aug 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are. I am in Naples Fl and they are quite prevalent down here.
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.
Has anyone succeeded in growing these in pots? I really love crepe myrtles but I don’t want them covering the entire front window.
Chinette S on Jul 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Haven't tried. Mine is in ground. We keep trimmed. Don't want too big.
Will I have to wait until fall to plant 2-3 ft Pink Velour Crape?
C W on Jul 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather.
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
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.
What months do they bloom?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Late spring through early fall.
Would this grow well on a hill side in Zone 10 (northern CA)?
Susan W on Oct 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It didn’t grow on mind
how far do you trim them back? best time early spring? mine is 6 ft tall and took the shape of a bush after two years. its gorgeous - I love it. I have used the art of pruning - early May top of the branch where the little pods are - down to the connecting branch- cut from the top approx 10"- is this correct? I live in central NJ.
Joe V on Sep 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Crape pruning is always a “mixed bag” if asking anyone when and how to prune. “Crape murder” is a common term heard with those who go far beyond what is necessary when trimming their myrtles. Prune in the late winter before any of the growth begins. If done in the late fall you will jeopardize the tree’s dormancy state which can lead to the tree dying. Sterilize your cutting tools with rubbing alcohol to ensure no pathogens infect the tree and always make your cuts at a 45 degree angle.

Some prefer to chop off all of the branches at a uniformed height every year leaving the stubs for the winter season that form a ball of growth in the springtime. This is good for height control and a uniformed border but can commonly result in knobby stems and bunchy growths that are easily susceptible to disease and aphid pests. This is where the term “crape murder” comes into play. Only a light pruning of the myrtle is needed to encourage plenty of blooms but “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” when it comes to choosing the shape of your crapes.

For a more graceful tree shape, remove all but 4-5 strong trunks and then remove the lateral branches around the bottom ½ of the tree. To encourage branching, make your cuts on the longer, leggy limbs. Try not to over prune too early, do your basic pruning then allow the tree to grow a bit and then continue shaping over time. Remove any damaged, diseased, or crossing branches during the late winter. Also be sure to remove any suckers or low growths to prevent your crape from looking more shrub-like.
Do you have any craps Myrtle that would live in zone 6 I live in the Cincinnati Ohio area ?
Elaine R on Apr 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes for a zone 6 you can do the Enduring Summer, Red Rocket, Hopi, Sioux, or the Black Diamond Crape Myrtle.
I'm in zone 8 in Portland, Oregon and wondered if the pink velour will grow in a spot that only gets morning and early afternoon sun. If not is there another flowering small tree that would do better?
Thanks!
Elle Y on Apr 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As long as it gets 4-6 hours of sunlight a day.

marie d on Jun 22, 2016

I live in southern Illinois is there a chance that this tree will grow in our area? I have seen a couple of them around. Not too many though. I really like this beautiful tree. I had a magnolia tree,, but the flowers don't last after a little bit of wind.
l.isa M on Apr 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I love my crape. It blooms after the early spring trees so I have some color most of the summer. I was afraid we are too far north for this " southern" tree but it blooms beautifully. I encourage you to buy it.
