Crape Myrtle Pruning

Anonymous added on January 7, 2011 | Answered

Can crape myrtles be pruned back when they are dormant? Some say I can, and some say not to. This time of year in Florida I see a lot of them pruned. Could you please let me know.

You can prune them while they are dormant. Some people prefer to wait, as pruning while dormant can decrease the blooms in the next season, but it will not harm the plant.
