Pet Sympathy White Crepe Myrtle
Watering- Water your crape myrtle as needed to keep the surrounding soil moist. During summer heat, you will need to water it more often. Sun- Plant or place your crape myrtle in a full sun area. They need full sun to thrive. Fertilize- You want to fertilize your crape myrtle very lightly. Use a slow-release fertilizer formula in early spring and summer season. Pruning- Remove damaged leaves or branches during the late winter months. Pruning can aid in bloom production.
When planting your crape myrtle select an area with neutral or slightly acidic well-drained soil and a sunny location. They’re sun lovers and need to receive 6-8 hours of sunlight daily. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball and just as deep. Place your tree in the hole and make sure it is leveled with the surrounding soil. Backfill the hole with soil and water to settle the tree’s roots. Add mulch to help conserve moisture.
Ensure the crape myrtle roots are well-protected and mulched to help it endure cold winters. Consider pruning branches to lower level, new growth and blooms will come out as the tree emerges in the spring.
Potting & Container
Crape myrtle can grow well in a pot/container. Make sure you have a container/pot large enough to allow for growth. You will have to water it more often than if planted in the ground. Make sure to keep the soil moist (not soggy). Place it in a sunny location.
