Why Muskogee Crape Myrtle Trees?
Not only is the Muskogee one of the few Crape Myrtle varieties with rich lavender-purple flowers…but it also delivers color and full blooms for up to six months! No true blue Crape variety exists, but the Muskogee comes close with its cool lavender undertones.
Plus, Muskogees are one of the fastest-growing Crape Myrtle Trees available. That means your Muskogee will quickly mature to the perfect height for colorful ornamental use. Plus, because the Muskogee is adaptable to a wide range of soil types, resistant to powdery mildew, and tolerant of drought, you won’t have to lift a finger.
When other Crape Myrtle varieties succumb to mildew, your Muskogee will keep growing strong, even in humid areas of the South. No messy or harsh sprays are necessary to get the vibrant blueish-toned flowers and rich cinnamon-hued bark of your Muskogee.

Customer Reviews & Photos
My Crepe Myrtels came well packaged. They looked like dry sticks. Within a week they are leafing out. They have attractive multiple trunks. I'm pleased and excited about watching them grow and develop. At this size, I can prune to fit their location for the future.
The tree was cheap enough but not sure if I got multiple trees or one. I planted what came as one tree. I will know more after the first bloom if it's what I ordered. In this area you see a lot of Pink and Red Crepe Myrtles but never a Blue one. I was looking for a tree with a Blue flower and this may be the answer.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! Our crape myrtles are going to have multiple trunks so you can leave it planted as one tree! Feel free to reach out with any other questions or concerns!
Love this tree! Mine came with multiple trunks and already showing beautiful Fall color. I can’t wait for Spring.
It was in good condition on delivery I plan on planting it next week.
So far good.We will see in the spring how they grow.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Muskogee in a full sun location (6 to 8 hours of sunlight) with well-drained soil.
Dig your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Lightly comb your hands over the root ball to free up the roots a bit before planting. Place your tree in the hole and make sure that the root crown (where the root ball meets the trunk of the tree) is level with the soil surface.
Tamp down the soil lightly as you backfill the hole to prevent air pockets from forming and then water after you’ve finished to settle the soil. Mulch the area around the tree to conserve water moisture and deter competing weeds and grasses.
2. Watering: Crape Myrtles are drought tolerant and can thrive on rainfall alone after they’re established. However, you should water young plants once or twice weekly in the meantime. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check your surrounding soil about 3 inches down for dryness.
After your Crape is established, it will only need to be watered during extended dry periods.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Crape with a high-nitrogen fertilizer in the spring, before new growth begins.
4. Pruning: Thin out young trees to 3 to 4 main branches. After blooming in spring, clip the tips of the branches. Make the cut just above the point where a pair of leaves attaches to the stem.
