- PruningPruning out branches that cross over other branches (thinning) promotes air flow to prevent disease. Remove spent flower heads throughout summer (a process known as "deadheading") to "trick" crepe myrtle trees into continuing to bloom even more profusely. Also remove any suckers that appear. You may also find volunteer seedlings popping up all over your lawn, which mean extra weeding for you (unless you wish to transplant them).
