Help with young crape myrtle
Hello fellow gardeners - Will the branch extending from the base of the tree's left trunk, crossing behind it's right trunk, create problems when it matures? I've heard so many stories about avoid pruning young crapes, yet recommend the removal of crossing branches. Well, this youngster is starting life with a crossing branch, and the removal of it would take out the majority of it's canopy right side. What shall I do? I realize that pruning should be done in late Jan. - Feb. I am very concerned & any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!
