Q.Transplanting Crepe Myrtle

Anonymous added on March 18, 2011 | Answered

I think I have a crepe myrtle. It has about three stalks that branch out from the ground and sheds the bark. It’s about 14 feet tall, and I’m transplanting it. Will it survive if I cut the roots, as they are going under the house, and I can’t dig them all out?

It has a pretty good chance of surviving. Once you move it, trim back the branches some and make sure to keep it well watered until it is established in its new spot.
