Pruning: Prune to remove dead wood and for aesthetics and shape in the early Spring while tree is still dormant.

Comments: Mix peat moss, compost, or aged manure deeply into the soil. Very slow to show growth after planting or in Spring.

Trees should flower the first year, but will produce heavier flowering during second or third season. Make excellent container grown trees. For Winter storage, pot may be sheltered outside or brought into an unheated area and kept moist. RESTRICTED STATES, AE, AK, GU, HI, PR.

compliment on plant
Reviewed By: sharon (omaha, nebraska)
My Crape Myrtle are doing great. They did come a little bit scrawny and I do agree about them taking a long time to arrive. I do say though that I order 2 plants and they are thriving and growing rapidly like advertised. I'm looking to forward to seeing the flowers on them and hope they make it through the winter okay. I can say that I'm not happy with how long it took for some of my stuff to come and it was almost dead but I'm very happy with my Myrtle.
