Trim Large Muskogee Crepe Myrtle

Zone 77573 | vdfunk@comcast.net added on December 19, 2019 | Answered

I have a beautiful large Muskogee that is about 35 feet tall. I've noticed over the last 2 years I am not getting as many blooms and it looks like it is thinning. Can I trim this? Like a major trim, or will that harm it? See uploaded photo.
