Infinitini crapemyrtles need little maintenance. They naturally grow with a wide and low habit so require no regular pruning. However, if pruning is desired, do so in early spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge on the stems. Cut out any dead wood in spring as well.
In cold climates, Infinitini crapemyrtles may die back to the ground, but they will regrow from the roots and flower that same season.Fun Facts:
