Planting & Care 

Sunlight: It is preferable to plant it in the fall in order to support root development,

Soil: well-drained. Loam, clay, sand

Water: Once established, crape myrtles are quite drought-tolerant. During the first few growing seasons, they should be watered regularly and deeply once a week, or twice a week in extremely hot weather.

Fertilizer: During the first growing season (spring/summer), lightly fertilize once a month. For established trees or shrubs, apply a slow-release fertilizer at the first signs of new growth in spring. Following that, apply a light feeding twice a month in spring and summer

Temperature: Hardy, though not heat tolerant of western exposures or temperatures above 115oF. 

Pruning: pruning should be done in winter when they're dormant.
