Product Description

Giant Blooms, Even in the Smallest Spaces

Why Tonto Crape Myrtle Trees?

Get the promise of huge, eye-catching blooms, no matter the size of your landscape. With the Tonto Crape Myrtle Tree, you get rich fuchsia-red flowers throughout the summer, even in tiny gardens.

It’s the perfect tree for big color in small spaces. Plus, it’s disease resistant and adaptable to nearly any soil type, so hours spent maintaining your garden are a thing of the past. It thrives on neglect, delivering vivid color from late spring to early fall, even in drought conditions.

In fact, the Tonto is more resistant to common Crape diseases than any other variety. And because it’s so healthy and vibrant, it will be one of the last trees in your garden to lose its leaves each fall.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Select a site with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).

Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the Tonto Crape Myrtle into the hole, ensuring it is standing straight. Backfill the soil, water to settle the roots, and apply a layer of mulch around your tree to help retain moisture.

2. Watering: Water your young tree up to three times a week during the first growing season. Once your tree is established, it will only need watering in times of extreme drought with no rainfall.

If you’re not sure when to water, simply check your surrounding soil about 3 inches down. When the soil is dry here, water your Tonto Crape.

3. Fertilizing: Feed your tree in the spring before new growth begins. A light application of 5-10-5 fertilizer is best.

4. Pruning: Watch for any leaves emerging from the base of the tree and remove promptly. To promote good air circulation, thin out young trees to 3 to 4 main branches and remove any dead or twiggy branches. Prune in late winter, before new growth begins.

Tonto Crepe Mrytle 1-2 ft

Ordered in April and got in the ground immediately. Tree arrived moist, packaged well and healthy. I didn't expect to see blooms this year from a 1-2 ft tree,, BUT wow! Beautiful watermelon pink and growing like crazy. I get all of my trees from FGT and they always deliver a very healthy product. Thanks FGT!

Very pleased!

Glad to have heard of this company on the Bongino Show. My wife and I had been looking locally for a crape myrtle and hadn't been able to find the right one. I ordered this one and it arrived within a week in good shape. I planted it next day and its been growing beautifully. Within 2 months it had grown about 1.5 feet and by the 3rd month it was already flowering. Will be getting another one!

We had a mix up on one of our shipments ( got wrong tree.) The response to correct was immediate...a winning combination...great product and great service! We would highly recommend this company! Try them...you will not be disappointed!
