Crape Murder!

Crape murder
As the dawn of warm spring days arrive, there are chainsaw bearing Crape Murderers lurking around neighborhoods across our area.
Please, please don't cut crape myrtles back to stumps of thier former selves. Yes, they will still grow and yes they will still bloom, but they certianly can't develope into the beautiful form they were designed to grow if they are annually chopped back to a shadow of their self.
If you need short crape myrtles, plant short crape myrtles! Don't plant one that grows to 30' and try to keep it 6'!
You'll never win that battle. Holcombs can help you choose the right plant for the right location.
