Step away from your Crape Myrtle until you have read and understand the correct methods and appropriate time to prune it. Resist the urge to engage in “Crape Murder.” This is the term that has been coined to describe the horrendous act of topping Crape Myrtles leaving nothing but a cluster of bare and unattractive trunks. Most people learn how to prune their trees from their neighbors.
