Good Crape Myrtle delivery
FastGrowingTrees had been great. We received the tree in great shape, planted them the next day, and they seemed "happy". then here in Ohio we had 2 below freezing days, which is extremely unusual for southern Ohio. the leave have crinkled a bit, we cover the plants and are hoping that the plants did not freeze. We shall see soon. This freezing was not due to ordering, just to Mother Nature.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Find an area with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place your tree, backfill your soil and water to settle the roots. Mulch the area around the tree to conserve moisture.
2. Watering: Myrtles are quite drought tolerant but may need more watering during the hot summer season. If you’re not sure when to water your Crape, simply check the surrounding soil about 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.
3. Fertilizing: Apply a slow-release fertilizer in the early spring and summer seasons.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 7-10 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
