Starting Weeping Crepe Myrtle from seeds - how?

Anderson, TX(Zone 8a)

Can anyone give me some pointers on starting Weeping Crepe Myrtle from seeds?

Hi Jessare, I'll send you some sprouted roots that you can plant, if you want them. Need to wait until about April when the shoot up. I planted 3 of the roots last Fall and they took off.

I have bright pink and white ones. Let me know,

Grits - can I get some sprouted roots, too, please?

For starting crepe myrtle seeds, place the seed on the surface of the soil - do not cover. Give plenty of light and keep the room at 70 degrees. Stratifying in the freezer for 6-8 weeks prior to sowing may be necessary.

Hi Dave! Will send as soon as they come up - do we need a list of Spring promises? How we gona' do this? I've promised lots and want to followup.

I'll remind you. ;-)
