Crape Myrtle Trees are summer bloomers, and only have blooms on their new growth. Once they break dormancy this new growth will rapidly emerge. It’s good to remove a few of the older branches to make way for the new growth. Also, it’s good to lightly prune Crape Myrtle trees in the late winter or early spring in order to keep them neatly shaped. However, most crape myrtles naturally grow into beautiful forms.
You may think spring is the best time to plant and update your Central Virginia landscape. However, with the lower temperatures during the fall, fall time is actually perfect for planting an array of trees, shrubs and groundcovers and even pruning some trees and shrubs. In the fall, cooler weather will put less stress on the plants during installation, thus allowing them to better acclimate to the new surroundings.
