Dynamite Crape Myrtles

Easy tp order and arrived quickly. Plants appeared healthy on opening the shipping box. Took them out and watered them for a few days before planting. Able to measure out and plant along driveway, three on each side. Planned to stagger sides but given expected mature sizes and location of southern magnolia also purchased changed plans to planting directly across from each other along the driveway. In the ground now 4 days and have had ample rain since planting. Can’t wait for them to start growing in the spring and blooming. Looking forward to full size of plants.

Crepe myrtle

The trees were nice but I'm afraid I made a mistake . I don't think they will survive in zone 6 where I am. I'll just have to wait and see.


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.

4. Pruning: For a more graceful tree shape, remove all but 4 to 5 strong trunks and then remove the lateral branches around the bottom half of the tree.

You can still order, but due to cold weather, we have delayed shipping to the areas shaded on the map below. We want your new plant to thrive right out of the box, so we will wait on shipping your order until the weather is ideal. This includes anyone in Growing Zones 3 - 6.
