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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Very satisfied with the product and service. Will order from them in the future.
Great, very good stock will buy again!!
When they arrived, they looked dead like twigs. Within 24 hours of sunlight, small leaves sprouted. A week later, they have a beautiful lush foliage of green leaves and reddish buds for now growth. Love them!!!
I bought this tree as a gift to one of my best friends after her daughter, my Goddaughter was killed in a car accident. Her godfather and I got this as a pair. Pink was her favorite color. Mom was very happy to receive the gift even though it was in a dormant state. We are all very anxious for it to bloom in the spring and I have no doubt it will be a beautiful reminder of our girl.
The tree arrived in very good shape but cannot give 5 star review until it grows and I see how it measures up to description.
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, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. 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.
