Common questions about growing Lagerstroemia

1. When should I buy crepe myrtle?

The best time to buy crepe myrtle is during the summer, when the plants are in full bloom. This will allow you to see the exact colour and size of the flowers before you buy. However, summer is not the best time for planting. Therefore, The Plant Company recommends buying anytime between autumn and spring so the plant can establish before the heat of summer arrives.

2. What is the best crepe myrtle to buy?

The best crepe myrtle to buy depends on your individual needs and preferences. Consider the following when choosing a crepe myrtle:

Here are a few of the best crepe myrtle varieties:

These are just a few of the many great crepe myrtle varieties available. Be sure to do your research to find the perfect variety for your needs and preferences.

3. Do crepe myrtles grow very fast?

Crepe myrtles are known for their fast growth rate, and will generally grow 30-60 cm per year, but some varieties can grow at twice this pace. The fastest growing crepe myrtle varieties are 'Basham's Party Pink' and 'Red Rocket'.

4. Do crepe myrtles have invasive roots?

Crepe myrtle roots are not considered to be invasive. They are typically shallow and spread within the top 30-50 cm of soil. They are therefore safe around structures and as street trees.

5. Are crepe myrtles hard to maintain?

Crepe myrtles are generally considered to be low-maintenance trees. They are drought-tolerant, disease-resistant, and relatively pest-free. However, there are a few things you can do to keep your tree looking its best:

6. Should crepe myrtles be cut back every year?

Whether or not to cut back crepe myrtles every year depends on your personal preferences and the goals you have for your tree. Crepe myrtles bloom on new wood, so pruning can encourage more flowering and control the shape of the tree.

If you are new to pruning crepe myrtles, it is best to start with light pruning and see how the tree responds. You can always prune more heavily next year if needed. Here are some tips:

7. What is the lifespan of a crepe myrtle tree?

Crepe myrtle trees have a moderate to long lifespan, with most trees living for 25-50 years. However, some crepe myrtle trees have been known to live for 100 years or more! The oldest known crepe myrtle tree is over 130 years old and is located in Roncade, Italy.
