Reviving an Overpruned Crepe Myrtle

Cbarker added on May 19, 2012 | Answered

We overpruned a couple of our crepe myrtles apparently last winter. They have buds and some leaves up and down the limbs but definitely not where they should be this time of year, is there something I can do to help them? I definitely won't prune them like that in the future. Thanks!
