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

Just choose one leader and keep the rest pruned back. This will require constant care and pruning to keep one, single leader.
