Crepe Myrtles - Knowledgebase Question

Question by della129

I've noticed that the crepe myrtles in my yard are not blooming as well as most crepe myrtles I see.
Is there something I need to do to get more blooms on them?

Crape myrtles develop flowers on new growth so if you prune your crape myrtle back in the early spring, just when it begins to develop leaves, the new growth should flower for you. After the flowers fade you can prune it back again and it will produce a second flush of flowers later in the summer.

Best wishes with your crape myrtle!
