When Is The Best Time To Trim Crepe Myrtles in Louisiana

The best time to prune crape myrtles in Louisiana is late winter and the best month is February. This time is best because this is when the shrub is fully dormant and can withstand the removal of a large amount of branches with minimal stress. Pruning crepe myrtles usually helps the tree produce more flowers when it resumes growth in the spring and summer.
