Months of Vibrant Pink Blooms

Why Petite Pinkie™ Crape Myrtle Trees?

With its vibrant blossoms and compact size, the Petite Pinkie™ Crape Myrtle is sure to steal the show in any space this summer! Petite Pinkie™ is a dwarf variety, perfect for planting alone or in groupings. Plus, its compact size makes it suitable for urban gardening.

Vivid, showy clusters of delicate, pink, crepe-like flowers elevate the Petite Pinkie. It has shrub-like qualities, with a smooth bark texture and bright green foliage to complement its show-stopping blooms. Petite Pinkie™ is a deciduous variety, though it blooms in late summer and into fall for months of color.

As an added bonus, Petite Pinkie™ also attracts pollinators like bees, butterflies, and other wildlife. Petite Pinkie™ may look small, but it can hold its own in humidity, drought, and poor soil conditions, thriving and delivering unmatched visual interest effortlessly.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Crape Myrtles are full sun lovers, so try and find a spot where they will get as much as possible. Other than that, this tree prefers 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(s) of the tree) is level with the soil surface. Mulch the area around the tree to conserve water moisture and deter competing weeds.

2. Watering: Crape Myrtles are drought tolerant but may need a bit more attention with watering during the hot summer season. Depending on your soil, you may need to water more frequently. If you're not sure when to water, however, simply check your surrounding soil about 3 inches down.

3. Fertilizing: Your Crape will greatly benefit from a light application of a complete, balanced, slow-release fertilizer formula in the early spring and summer seasons.

4. Pruning: Remove all but 4 to 5 strong trunks and then remove the lateral branches around the bottom half of the tree. To encourage branching, make your cuts on the longer, leggy limbs.
