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.
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 has only been a couple weeks but it looks great and it already bloomed. Excited to watch it grow.
I purchased the 2-3 ft Pink Velour Crape Myrtle for Zone 9/10. It arrived in excellent condition packed nicely in the shipping container. I planted the tree 2 weeks ago and it is thriving wonderfully. The young tree has new blooms every day - see attached photos taken 2 days apart. Thank you Fast Growing Trees for a perfect tree. I look forward to ordering more.
I'll admit that I'm stunned by how well this tree is doing. I've had it in the ground for a week, it's been over 100 degrees the whole time (with more to come), and dang if this thing hasn't been growing. It's twice as leafy already. I have the TreeGator Jr. around it, and I think that's making a huge difference. My other plants aren't nearly as happy and thriving.
I bought this for my mother for Mother's Day to replace a flowering tree that she lost in Hurricane Florence. I was very happy with the speed with which it was delivered and the condition of the tree when it arrived. It made her day. Thank you!
Fast delivery and it's only been a couple of weeks and they're growing!
