Plant Patent #10,319. Cv. 'Whit III'. Growing 10 to 12 feet at maturity, this lovely Crape Myrtle grabs everyone's attention with its bright pink blooms and distinctive burgundy-colored new growth that changes to dark purplish-green as the summer progresses.

'Pink Velour' is usually used as an ornamental tree or eye-catching centerpiece because of its exceptional color. The burgundy shades on the foliage is most visible along the edges of the leaves and along the veins. It almost seems to glow all around the edges when it's in sunlight! The blooms last for several months, and the maroon seedpods split open to release winged seeds. Gorgeous!

If you want this lovely Crape Myrtle to grow dense and low to the ground, it can be cut back and pruned to your liking. This is a truly wonderful, long-lasting garden treasure! Zones 6-9. Cannot ship to AZ.
