Answer: Pruning would stimulate additional growth. However, since these plants are somewhat prone to winter damage and it is already late July, I would suggest leaving them as is for now, but pruning back hard next spring (the usual pruning time for crepe myrtle) to induce additional sprouts from the base then. This way, growth made this year will have ample time to harden off before winter. Congratulations on your success.
