I rode around the Shoals taking picture of crepe myrtle murder and some down right castrated. I’m not going to give the locations, but some you can call where due to the surroundings. If you are doing landscaping, please learn the proper pruning.
Most of the time, the planter is guilty of selecting a variety that is too large and tall for the spot chose. Before planting check out the varieties and chose the proper size so you won’t have to commit murder.
