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
- Crape Myrtle
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.
give me a year
all is good. They came in very quickly. now we shall see.
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 FastGrowingTress.com, a total of more than 15 trees so far. I will continue to use the service from FastGrowingTress.com; they products are well-maintained, and nicely secured in shipment --- tow thumbs up!
