110 Days of Vibrant Blooms
Why Natchez Crape Myrtle Trees?
Imagine an incredible 110 days of flower power! The Natchez will delight you with hundreds of delicate white flowers from June to September. Especially since it's a fast grower that delights all summer long.
The Natchez Crape grows rapidly at 3 to 5 feet a year and is tolerant of many climates. Through the toughest conditions and weather, the Natchez' pure white blooms will explode in brilliance against the tree's deep green canopy.
The Natchez Crape Myrtle also delivers unusual bark coloring of cinnamon on the trunk and stems, along with its smooth, sleek distinctive texture. This coloring gives you great winter interest with a brightness not found in most other trees during the cold season.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location with full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily) and well-drained soil. Dig your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep.
Place your Natchez in the hole and make sure that the root crown (where the root ball meets the trunk(s) of the tree) is level with the soil surface. Backfill and then mulch the area around the tree.
2. Watering: While establishing, Myrtles may need a bit more attention with watering during the hot summer season. Once they're established, they subsist on rainfall alone, but we recommend watering about once or twice weekly while they're young.
If you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 3 inches down for dryness.
3. Fertilizing: Your Natchez will benefit from a light application of a complete, balanced, slow-release fertilizer formula in the early spring and summer.
4. Pruning: Only a light pruning of the myrtle is needed to encourage plenty of blooms. Remove any dead and damaged branches, and prune back to about 4 or 5 strong trunks.
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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
It's a winner!
I had my doubts when I opened the box and saw what looked like sticks coming out of burlap. I used the root rocket and organic soil mix and after 3 days I could see tiny buds on those sticks and now 3 weeks in, it is covered with leaves and new growth. I am very happy and look forward to buying more trees!
Small but Healthy!
I cannot wait to see the form of these. Plants were smaller than expected but are currently thriving.
Everything I have ever bought from you over the years, has lived and done well. Excellent packaging and easy transfer into soil. Thank you.
New tree in the ground
The service was fast and the tree arrived in pretty good shape. It was packed well but the carrier left the package in the sun which certainly did not help its condition. I would recommend a warning be put on the package not to leave the item in exposed sunlight and to place LIVE plants in the shade if possible.
My ice cream cones
I love these trees they are beautiful they give your yard a beautiful look we shaped my husband shaped them like ice cream cones when the white flowers, it does look like an ice cream cone or a green ice cream cone when there's no white flowers
