|Spring and fall are the best months to plant landscape trees and shrubs. You can plant a crape myrtle now or anytime before hot summer weather arrives. Crape myrtles bloom on new growth in the spring. Planting now should give enough time for the roots to become established before the floral display. Enjoy!
