Where to Plant:
Crape Myrtles can be grown all throughout the United States. For the best results, plant your crape myrtle in an area that gets at least 6 to 8 hours of full sun daily (more sun = more blooms) You can also plant your tree in an area with partial sun, but you may not get as many flowers.

Planting Crape Myrtle Trees

How to plant a crape myrtle:
When planting your crape myrtle tree, it is important that you pick a spot that gets at least 6 to 8 hours of full sunlight per day and has well-drained soil. This is vital because if your soil isn't well drained, it can cause root rot; and if you do not plant it in an area that gets full sun, you will have minimal amounts of blooms. Afterwards, dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Be careful, if you plant the tree too deep in the soil, the tree will not be able to breathe. The top of the root ball should be leveled with the soil. That way, the tree will be able to gather enough oxygen. Though this tree is drought tolerant, water generously for the best results.

And This is Why It'd so Important to Prune your Tree...

Pruning Crape Myrtles:
All crape myrtles bloom on new wood and should be pruned in winter, late January, or early spring, February. On shrubs and trees, remove the suckers towards the base, crossing branches, and branches growing toward the center. During the growing season, clip off spent flowers to promote a second, lighter bloom. Prune dwarf forms periodically throughout the growing season, removing spent blossoms and thinning out small, twiggy growth. Prune during the winter months when they're dormant. You may have seen a few gardeners cut about 50% of their tree back to promote new growth. This method is known as “Crape Murder”, and though it doesn't damage the tree, it isn't necessary and could eventually kill it. Click Here to learn how to prune your tree, not murder it!

It is important to prune your tree because crape myrtles only bloom off of new growth. The more you prune old, or damaged wood, the more growth the plant will produce. By pruning your tree, you will get bigger and brighter blooms!

Vibrant Colors that Will Make You Addicted

Besides being low maintenance, cold hardy, and disease resistant, Crape Myrtles are loved because of the variety of vibrant colors available. If you're looking for a beautiful tree that has pink blooms, you can always try the Sioux Crape Myrtle or Pink Velour Crape Myrtle. If you're looking for something elegant and quiet, the white flowers on the Natchez Crape Myrtle are one of a kind.
