Pruning Crape Myrtles

Anonymous added on August 4, 2011 | Answered

We have two crape myrtles in our front yard that are at least 15 feet tall, but they look leggy and scruffy. We have never pruned them before but I don't know if we can wait until late winter/early spring. We live in Cola, SC and have average temps of 94 in August. We have had a lot of rain this summer. When is the earliest that we can prune? What can we do to get a good shape going?
