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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- Dynamite Crape Myrtle
Strong, starting to thrive
Started out kinda scared if it was going to make, it must have had a bumpy ride during shipping, box was banged up pretty bad, however it has survived through it all and starting to form new leaves, i was hoping to see blooms, just don't don't think so seeing that it's so late in the year. There's always next year, and I'm looking forward to seeing how beautiful it looks.
Disappointed Beyond Belief
Apparently, this company doesn’t allow all the negative reviews to be posted. Look at the photo below and you decide how you would feel. My wife and I feel let down big time by this company. A twig for $89.95?
We're very sorry that your tree was disappointing. These trees that are grown here are still dormant where the ones found in your local nursery have already bloomed. It looks like our team has helped to resolve your concerns and as your tree acclimates it will leaf out and fill in beautifully!
