How do I prune this crapemyrtle?
Since this is a shorter-statured crapemyrtle, there is no need to prune it, unless you want to deadhead any seed heads that form. Since Lagerstroemia Purple Magic is a rebloomer, we recommend cutting of the spent flower heads to encourage another flush of growth and reblooming in the same summer.

One of our friends, a big Southern Living reader, told me she followed the pruning instructions in an article in that magazine. She had me over to show off her work. I was so impressed. She's not a gardener, yet she followed the instructions and turned overgrown crapemyrtles into the most beautiful in her neighborhood!
