Best time to prune crape myrtle is late winter early spring and they require minimal pruning. When planting it is important to plan for mature height and width. If you need to reduce in height or shape, take a look at the attached links. http://pender.ces.ncsu.edu/2013/02/how-do-i-prune-crape-myrtle/
