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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- Fast Growing Trees
First time I ordered a tree online, and wasn’t sure it will work. When I received it, I was so skeptical if it will grow at all. It was looking so dry. But I was magically surprised 1,5 week lately, when I found little healthy tiny leaves on it)). It’s growing, this is our first step. I’ll keep posted as soon as I’ll get first flowers.
I recommend this product as it was an easy way to send a gift. The tree was small but arrived safe and intact.
Ordering was easy, delivered on-time, and arrived in good shape. It has been in the ground for about 3 weeks and is doing well
Ordering from this company is very easy, shipping is also easy and the plants arrive in a reasonable time. The specimens were the size advertised, but when we opened the box, we found limbs broken and leaves off the trees. Fortunately, they are recovering and will soon look very good.
Overall experience has been great.
