The Q&A Archives: Trimming

Question: Is it too late to trim miniature crepe myrtles?

Answer: Your crape myrtle will bloom this spring on new wood. If you wait until after it blooms to trim, it will bloom again later in the summer. If you prune it now, you may be pruning off potential flower buds.
