Planting & Care

1. Planting: Well-drained soil and a fun sun location are ideal for your Crape Myrtle. Simply select an area that receives 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day. Once you’ve selected a location, dig a hole that’s about two times the size of your plant’s root ball. After that, place your tree, back fill the soil and tamp down to finish. Water after planting your Crape to settle its roots.

2. Watering: Water your Crape Myrtle thoroughly every other day for the first month. After that, scale back to once every week or week and a half. However, if you’re not sure when to water your plant, simply check its soil. If its surrounding soil near your Crape is dry, down to around 2 or 3 inches, it’s time to water.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilizer your Crape Myrtle with a well-balanced blend once per year, just as new growth emerges.

4. Pruning: Prune your Crape Myrtle during late winter or early spring to achieve your desired height and shape but do so carefully – no need to cut off all its branches!
