Crape Myrtle Care:
Tree will arrive rooted in soil in its nursery container. Remove excess dirt around root ball before planting to encourage new growth. A slow release fertilizer will help if applied annually during the growing season to promote flowering and root development.
Remove any suckers that appear at the bottom of the tree to encourage a central leader. Remove spent flowers to encourage more growth.
