    Though Center Stage crapemyrtles have been evaluated and shown to have excellent disease resistance, they should still be planted in full sun (6+ hrs/day), and overwatering should be avoided, to ensure the best performance.

    If you wish to prune, do so in early spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge on the stems.
