CRAPEMYRTLES

The best time to dig crapemyrtles is when they begin to grow in the spring. They dig exceptionally well “in leaf”. Crapemyrtles cannot be dug reliably in dormancy. Natchez & Miami are among the most risky. In winter, we suggest using either container crapemyrtles or B & B trees that were dug in summer, hardened off, and stored in mulch.

Note: In our “Availability”, multi-stem crapemyrtles and other trees are listed by height, single-stem trees are listed by caliper. Our multi-stem crapemyrtles are pruned to have 3 to 5 equal trunks.
