Plant a few Miami Crape Myrtle trees in your landscape and bask in the plethora of pink-red flower clusters in the summer! Miami Crape Myrtles can bring plenty of year-round color to landscapes when not much else is blooming. This deciduous tree is a beauty that also happens to be the perfect size for smaller yards.

The show doesn't stop at the huge clusters of blooms this pink-flowering tree produces. Its bright green foliage develops an orange-red fall color, and when paired with its smooth, mottled light cinnamon-brown bark, you have one of the best trees with fall color!

We like to plant a few Miami Crape Myrtle trees along a fence line, creating a beautiful privacy hedge screen. Plant them as specimen or streetside trees to add instant curb appeal. Whether you are planting these trees for privacy, their clusters of amazing red and pink flowers in the summer, or bright fall tree colors, the Miami Crape Myrtle is sure to please!

Anyone that has ever grown Miami Crape Myrtle trees knows just how easy they are to care for. These water-wise trees tolerate urban pollution allowing them to add vibrant color to any metropolitan area.

Once established, they require little to moderate watering, and are prized for their hardiness and mildew resistance. Plant Crape Myrtle Miami trees in locations that get plenty of full sun exposure and they will thrive and reward your yard with vibrant summer color and fall foliage!

Due to the slower growth rate of Crape Myrtle trees, we recommend planting mature specimens to bring instant color and curb appeal to your home. These trees benefit from monthly applications of fertilizer such as our Moon Dust from March to September. The extra nutrients will keep your Miami Crape Myrtles happy and healthy, help push more growth for a lush canopy and myriad of fall foliage, as well as promote the best coat of stunning red-pink flowers!

We also have the ideal companion plants such as Agapanthus, Magnolia, and Indian Hawthorn to tie your whole landscape design together!

Our nursery pros are happy to help you select the perfect trees for your landscape. All our trees, palms, hedges, plants, and cacti are locally grown in our climate and soil to ensure an easy and successful transition to your yard.

Every time a plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly saturated to a depth of at least 2 to 3 feet and at least as wide as a tree well. Very slow and deep watering is always recommended. During periods of extreme heat, we advise at least 1 additional time per week of watering for all varieties. For periods of heavy rain (1/2” or more) adjust accordingly by possibly skipping a watering session for that time.

These things never seem to stop blooming. They have some great color almost all year long. They bloomed nearly all summer and my trees were the talk of the neighborhood. Everyone just loved them. We think we'll plant a couple more this fall.
