Product Description

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.

    5 Stars!!!

    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. Pink Velour Crape Myrtle Pink Velour Crape Myrtle Review

    Thriving in the Desert

    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. Pink Velour Crape Myrtle Review

    So far so amazing!

    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.

    Strong & Gorgeous Tree!

    I am writing this review a little over a year after puchasing my tree. When I received my Pink Velour Crape Myrtle I was pleasantly surprised! I ordered the smaller size but what I got was larger than I expected! There was no damage and it looked very healthy. There were no flowers on it but the leaves were dark and had a lovely sheen. Unlike most other reviews I read I decided to order and plant my tree in the Fall instead of the Spring so that it could develop a strong root system. I was in no rush to see it flower. As soon as I planted it it went into shock...or maybe to sleep because the leaves became dull and started falling off due to the cooler weather. I didn't worry I just trusted the process and somehow knew it was fine. My little tree survived through ice snow and high winds during the winter. I saw the first signs of life on Easter Sunday! Tiny buds emerging from the branches! Week by week it became fuller and more beautiful. When the flowers finally started to bloom the color was magnificent! So eye catching. Don't listen to people who says it looks like peptol bismol lol. The color is unique. You dont often see this particular shade of pink on trees. It definitely turns heads where i live. It's gorgeous and will be a joyful addition to your garden. My tree flowered about 3 times during the season. I am in zone 7. When I purchased my tree from Fast Growing Trees I also purchased their fertilizer and tree steaking kit to keep my tree from being blown over during the winter. I live in an urban area where there isn't much space to garden and most people don't really care but I wanted to bring life and color to my home so I use what little soil space I have that's why this tree is perfect. It won't grow too large but it will offer massive beauty and color! I've added some pictures with my review. By the way I am a novice Gardner so my apologies for not adding more technical details about the planting process. I just followed the directions provided by Fast Growing Trees aside from a bit of research on line before purchasing. I also plant according to the phases of the moon and this seems to work wonders for me. My Pink Velour is accompanied by 2 bartzella peonies and 1 Pink Hawaiian Coral peony.

    Too soon to tell! My tree is only 2 feet tall but I'm sure it will be beautiful. Pink Velour Crape Myrtle Review
