The Crape Myrtle is a Richmond, Va favorite because of it's wide application and colors. They can be trimmed to a myriad of shapes to fit the landscape and conditions.
Crape Myrtles like partial Shade to Full sun and can tolerate moist to dry conditions. They prefer a soil pH of 4.5 to 7.3. They can be used as either a border or specimen/accent plant.
Prune dead wood from the plant in the spring. Because much of the beauty of this species comes from this species’ very handsome exfoliating trunks, topping (or major pruning) the main branches is strongly discouraged because it ruins the plant’s natural beauty. If such pruning is necessary, then you have selected an inappropriate cultivar whose mature size does not match that of the site dimensions. This type of pruning has been metaphorically and colloquially called “crape murder.”

To keep your flowers as fresh as possible, we strongly recommend that you trim the ends of the stems weekly. Use a knife or clippers to make a 45 degree angle cut about one half inch from the current end of the stem.
With the flowers out of the vase or container, replace the water. Once the water has been changed and the flowers cut, place the flowers back into the vase. Although it is not a requirement, adding flower preservative to the water before returning the flowers to the vase is higly encouraged.
Make sure the flowers do not sit in a sunny window or near a heat vent as this will cause wilting. Keep them as cool as possible. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us via email or phone.
