|If I cut the faded and dead blooms from a crape myrtle, will it produce new growth and new flower bunchs?
Thanks for your time. You guys have been a great help over the past year since joining the garden club.
|Glad you've found our advice helpful! Yes, if you prune the faded flowers from your crape myrtle, you'll most likely get a second flush of blooms later this summer. Crape myrtle flowers on new growth. Pruning yours back by cutting just behind the current flowers will encourage new growth which almost always includes new flower buds. Go ahead and prune yours back. Best wishes with your crape myrtle.|
