How to Prune Crape Myrtles Correctly

February is a great time to prune the Crape Myrtle Tree! Here is a fun informational video by Horticulturalist Melissa Allman of GardenMagik, who says we need to allow the Crape Myrtles to become graceful trees, not cut them down to ugly stumps. The objective of pruning a crape myrtle is to maintain its natural sculptural form, produce strong branches that hold flowers upright, and open up its center to reveal the smooth, multi-toned bark that forms on mature trunks and branches.
