Lagerstroemia indica 'Pink Velour'

Pink Velour, a large, multi-stemmed shrub, is one of the few crape myrtles that have really bright, hot-pink blooms; these last for months. New leaves emain a wine, or burgundy, color for weeks, mature to a dark purple-green, then turn a brownish orange in the fall. Roots easily from soft-wood cuttings.

Resists mildew.                                    Deer Resistant

Note: Regardless of hardiness zone, all crape myrtles are subject to die-back at temps below 15 degrees. Probability of this happening is increased by pruning in fall or winter. Prune only in earliest spring. Bloom will be on new wood.

 Attracts: Butterflies, Hummingbirds, Birds & other beneficial pollinators.
