Crape myrtle is easily propagated from semi-hardwood cuttings taken during the growing season. June, July and August are excellent times to root cuttings. Take cuttings from new growth, with three to four nodes per cutting. Strip the bottom leaves but leave several at the top of the cutting. Rooting hormone is generally not necessary, but you can use it if you like. Cuttings should root in three to four weeks. Place cuttings in a container of well-draining potting soil in a shaded area of your garden and keep the pottiing soil moist. Good luck with your venture!
