Maintenance Notes: 

Though Center Stage crapemyrtle has been evaluated and shown to have excellent disease resistance, it should still be planted in full sun (6+ hrs/day), and overwatering should be avoided, to ensure the best performance.

If you wish to prune do so in early spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge on the stems.
