I really love crepe myrtles and have one a friend propogated years ago but he didnt pass on the info and he has since passed on.

So I was wondering if anyone else has tried propogating a crepe myrtle either using the seed or from branch cuttings.

On GA one year Jane Edmonson propogated one but I didnt get to catch the information:(

The ONLY stupid question is the ONE NOT asked.

Crepe Myrtle takes easily from cutting, in fact bonsaists sometimes take quite large branches and strike them as cuttings (instant tree!) Just use loads of a hardwood type rooting hormone, keep very damp, and maybe regular doses of Seasol, which many swear by as a tonic for plants in shock.
