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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. 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.

- Dynamite Crape Myrtle
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.
The Dynamite Crape Myrtle arrived in great shape have it planted and keeping it watered looking forward to seeing grow in the spring hoping to buy more from you soon.
We are beginning a flower farm. I’m collecting flowering shrubs and trees. My 6 year old grandson particularly loves red crepe myrtles. I bought 5 for his birthday and they’re already blooming! He’s delighted that the blooms start white and pink and change to brilliant red! We’re all excited to see them mature!
