Turning a Crape Myrtle Bush Into a Tree
I have a Tonto crape myrtle bush/tree. Right now it looks more like a bush than a tree. The bush/tree is about 2 feet high with a lot of branches and leaves. My question is how can I turn my crape myrtle into a tree? Also, how can I add more trunks to my crape myrtle? Right now it just has two (the trunks are more like stems)?
