Care Information

  • Hardy once established, Crepe Myrtle enjoys a hot sheltered position and is best grown against a south facing wall or as a specimen plant in the conservatory - especially in frost-prone areas.
  • Plant in moderately fertile, well-drained soil in full sun.
  • No routine pruning is necessary apart from the removal of diseased, damaged, or dead wood. Shoots that are growing in unwanted directions can also be pruned out.
