Crape Myrtles and Fall

Yes it is time for Fall time clean ups…

No you can not trim your Crape Myrtles…

Why…It is just a horrible idea, that’s why!!!

We get the same question every year. People want to get all of their landscape clean up work done at one time. Trimming your Crape Myrtles can not be a part of that clean up though. As a rule you need to wait until they have dropped all of their leaves and gone dormant. This generally happens around January. It isn’t like you would kill the tree by trimming it right now but over time you will cause irrversiable damage that will affect way it blooms in the future. Hope this helps!!
