Planting & Care

Planting Instructions: The showy, densely-growing Crape is well-suited for a variety of settings and doesn’t need much care. However, we do have a few best practices to keep in mind.

When it’s time to plant your Cherokee Crape, choose an area with at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day and well-drained, somewhat moistened soil. Rich, acidic soils are best, but this Cherokee is hassle-free and fairly adaptable either way. Plus, it’s highly tolerant of urban pollution.

To plant, dig a hole that’s two or three times the width of your tree’s root ball. Place the plant, tamp down the soil and then water to establish the roots.

Fertilizer: When your Cherokee Crape Myrtle is young (during the first couple of growing seasons), we recommend using an all-purpose fertilizer, or specialized fertilizer if you want to test your soil’s needs.

Watering: The Cherokee Crape Myrtle needs moistened soil, so it’s important to water regularly, about once weekly, until the tree is established. If you’re not sure when to water, check the surrounding soil for dryness (down to about 2 or 3 inches). If the soil is dry, the Crape Myrtle needs to be watered.

Pruning: Extensive pruning is not needed, but we recommend removing dead or diseased limbs from your Cherokee Crape Myrtle. And any pruning should also be completed during the winter season or during dormancy.
