I live in the south and have several crepe myrtles. I lightly prune mine in the very early spring to neaten them up. I have heavily pruned in the past and they seem to bounce back fine. I do know that there are more blooms after a pruning. You can find articles plus pictures all over the internet concerning this. I love crepe myrtles as they require little care and bloom all summer into fall.
