Quick Overview:

‘Pink Velour’ features crepe-papery inflorescences of magenta-pink flowers from mid-summer to frost on upright branches rising to 6-10′ tall. Thick and leathery leaves emerge burgundy red in spring, mature to purplish green by summer and finally turn orange-brown in fall. Grayish-brown bark on mature branches exfoliates with age. Flowers give way to round seed capsules which often persist well into winter.

Description

Best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Does well in loamy, clay soils with good drainage. Benefits from a slow release fertilizer. Overly fertile soils tend to produce lush foliage growth at the expense of flowering with somewhat increased susceptibility to winter injury. Water roots deeply, particularly in dry spells, but avoid wetting the foliage.
