Q.How To I Grow A Crepe Myrtle Back From A Stump That Is Producing Sprouts?

Zone 70706 | ResiRechelle added on June 25, 2020 | Answered

I bought a house where the previous owners cut down 2 crepe myrtles but did not remove the stumps. 1 stump is producing sprouts, the other is not. Can I grow the crepe myrtle back from the 1 producing sprouts & how? All I can seem to find pertaining to stumps is how to remove them but I really prefer to regrow them if possible. Thanks!
