New Shipment of Crepe Myrtles Just In

Midtown Nursery has a new shipment of Crepe Myrtles at the 2794 Poplar location. They are 12 feet tall and in multiple colors. These are regularly priced at $149.99 but are on special for $50. Remember, the Poplar location is covered so you can shop in comfort even if it is raining. Midtown Nursery is happy to hold your purchases for a later pick-up.

Crepe Myrtles have a 90 day bloom period plus brilliant fall color. Keep in mind that Crepe Myrtles do not have to be pruned severely each year. Do not top branches back to the trunks. This causes unsightly knots and makes the tree lose its natural graceful shape. Those in the horticulture industry refer to it as Crepe Murder.

To properly prune your Crepe Myrtle trees, select three to five nicely spaced shoots growing from ground level as the main trunks. Remove side branches from these shoots about halfway up their height. As the plant grows over time, additional lower branches can be removed yearly so that the canopy begins three to four feet above ground level. You should remove suckers (new growth at the base shape).
