Trim Crape Myrtle late winter

Late winter is the time to trim Crape Myrtles; open up to improve air flow in the canopy,  remove rubbing branches, branches touching and those that overhang the house or other structures.  

Crape Myrtles love the sun, plant in locations where there is plenty of sun and good air flow.  There will be less trouble with powdery mildew if planted in the right location.
