Vibrant Pink Blooms, Summer to Fall

Why Pink Velour Crape Myrtle Trees?

The Pink Velour Crape Myrtle offers the classic pink blooms you love with a twist: deep wine-red leaves in the spring that transition to dark purplish-green in the summer, providing a perfect backdrop to its vibrant magenta flowers.

Plus, this color lasts for months…especially since the Pink Velour is drought tolerant and highly resistant to powdery mildew, which often affects other Crape varieties. And the Pink Velour is unique for its compact form, making it perfect for planting as an accent shrub or a small ornamental border. But no matter where you plant it, you get eye-catching color from July through September or even later.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your Pink Velour Crape Myrtle in a well-drained area with full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).

Dig a hole large enough to accommodate your tree’s root ball, place your tree, and backfill the soil. Mulch the surrounding soil to conserve moisture and keep competing growth at bay.

2. Watering: Only water your Crape Myrtle when your soil is dry about 2 or 3 inches down. Crape Myrtles are very drought tolerant and only need water during dry periods since they generally thrive on rainfall alone.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your Pink Velour Crape Myrtle in early spring with a slow-release fertilizer that's high in nitrogen.

    Great cust service

    The delivery service sent to wrong house and then didn’t pay attention to shipping instructions. Customer service was incredible and quickly replaced a broken tree. Pink Velour Crape Myrtle Pink Velour Crape Myrtle Review

    Love it

    It is very tiny, but I knew that. I have it surrounded by a tomato cage and the cage is twice as tall. But it is healthy and growing like crazy, if the deer would just quit trying to like it.

    Thriving one day at a time

    Great product. Was very skeptical of purchasing trees online. The trees came wrapped perfectly. It took a good month for the trees to establish. Pink Velour Crape Myrtle Review

    Great product as described and nicely packaged shipment securing the live plant

    I planted the tree the following day receiving the product that looked healthy in a good condition. Please see the photo attached here, taken 3 days after it was planted. I have a big yard to plant trees and have purchased several more times from, a total of more than 15 trees so far. I will continue to use the service from; they products are well-maintained, and nicely secured in shipment --- tow thumbs up! Pink Velour Crape Myrtle Review
