  1. Rhonda

    We needed to replace two of our old, dead crape myrtles so we ordered two of these. They came with some blooms and once we planted and watered them well they really bloomed! Beautiful purple blooms lasted well into fall, can’t wait until they bloom back up this summer

    Very impressed!! Tree arrived intact due to great packaging. Followed the included directions for planting and after a few days she already has some new growth. Can’t wait for her to mature and bloom.
