Crape Myrtle Care

Anonymous added on February 15, 2018 | Answered

Weather here (Houston area) has been weird. Had a horrible freeze but warm again. Now my Myrtles are getting green leaves just when they are scheduled to be trimmed. Is it OK to cut them back when there is new growth?

Mother Nature does like to keep us on our toes!

Since pruning a Crepe Myrtle is not necessary, I would forgo any pruning this season.
