When Is The Best Time To Transplant Crepe Myrtles


When to plant crepe myrtles is an important decision. The best time to transplant crepe myrtles varies depending on the variety planted, but generally speaking, you want to wait until after their foliage has died down in the fall; this will make it easier for them to take root and develop well during their first season of growth. Transplanting soon after your tree finishes blooming will help ensure that it starts growing again quickly (and not losing leaves). You can also choose whether or not you wish to delay planting your tree into spring; many varieties are more suited for colder weather than others, so although they may be able to handle warmer temperatures if transplanted before frost hits, waiting until May-June can allow them plenty of time for roots and new growth before summer heat becomes a problem.
