Pruning Crape Myrtle Bushes

Crape myrtles are such pretty bushes that it is no wonder they are so popular. However, few people know how to properly prune their bushes. While most people cut their crape myrtles back almost to the ground, you should actually only remove dead wood. Then, prune the bush into a pleasing shape. Some people prune their crape myrtle bushes so that they look like small trees, while others prefer a rounded shape.
