Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!

Arapaho Crape Myrtle! It's another fantastic variety of Crape Myrtle. Here's what you need to know about it:

  1. Appearance: The Arapaho Crape Myrtle is a deciduous tree that can reach a height of 20-30 feet. It has a rounded shape and smooth, cinnamon-colored bark. The foliage is dark green and turns a vibrant orange-red in the fall.

  2. Blooms: This variety is known for its abundant and long-lasting blooms. It produces large clusters of bright red flowers that appear in mid-summer and continue blooming into early fall. The flowers are dense and showy, creating a stunning display of color.

  3. Growth and Care: The Arapaho Crape Myrtle is relatively easy to grow and maintain. It prefers full sun exposure and well-drained soil. Regular watering is important, especially during dry periods. Pruning is typically done in late winter or early spring to remove any dead or damaged branches and promote healthy growth.
