I'm in western North Carolina. Is it too late to trim my crepe myrtle? ( April 29)

Depending upon how far along your crepe mytrle is in this seasons growth, you possibly could cut off some potential flowers. But, as they bloom on new wood and bloom continuously once they start, I don't think pruning now will set it back too much.

I agree, since you live in N.C. you have a long growing season ahead so you should still see blooms during mid and late summer!
