Can I trim my crape myrtle?
I know the typical pruning season for crape myrtles is late winter, around February. I actually got around to pruning mine up some back in February, but I was a little hesitant to do too much because I love hot tall and mature they are. Now, after a good growing season, I can see that they definitely need to be cut some more. There are a few lower branches that need to be removed, either because they are touching the house or because they are just hanging too low.
What I'm wondering is, am I okay to remove a few branches this time of year? Or do I need to wait until next year? (And try to remember which branches got in the way when it was in bloom.)
