    Those are timely tips. I am just getting ready to prune my crepe myrtle. Add anything that blooms on new wood to the list, so I'll be doing my vitex as well.

    Lucky you, having crepe myrtle in your yard! First time I saw crepe myrtle was on a visit to Williamsburg, VA! They're just beautiful, but they unfortunately don't grow in Ohio :( We have a ways to go yet here before the frost danger is over! ~M
