Lagerstroemia Plant Care
Crape Myrtle thrives in full sun with moist, well-drained soil. Drought tolerant, once established. In Zone 6, they will die back to the ground in winter. In warmer zones only prune as necessary for visual pleasure in late winter or early spring. Remove suckers, tangled branches or irregular shapes. Not demanding about soil pH but they prefer neutral or slightly acidic soils. Avoid too much fertilizer. A slow-release fertilizer high in nitrogen is best.
