How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Care Guide

To help crape myrtles retain water, mulch with organic matter 2-3 inches deep, making sure to keep mulch a few inches away from the trunk. Water regularly until established. Remove dead branches any time and prune weak branches back in the spring in order to encourage a strong and productive tree.

Love Sandra

My oldest dog recently passed, her name was Sandra... hence the reason I picked that cm, along with the magnificent color I saw on your website. It arrived packaged so nice. I'm assuming cardboard box and that plant wasnt going anywhere!! I could barely get the box open myself !! It was a lovely green and bigger than I thought. I'm VERY happy with it. I'm not the type to brag on company's products but this is the second time I've purchased through Plant Me Green and I was pleasantly surprised again!


I was worried because this crepe myrtle was a little delayed in reaching the birthday girl, and the weather was terribly hot that whole week, but she says it arrived in perfect condition. She was very happy with it.

you get what you pay for !

this one also arrived in bad shape, time will tell

Nice job!

This was a gift and it arrived in Washington State in great condition. My sister was pleased that it was larger than expected. Thank you.
