In the spring, I planted five "tonto" crepe myrtles along my driveway. They are now blooming, and I have found out that one is a light pink while the others are dark pink. I would like to move the light pink one. When is the best time of the year to transplant my crepe myrtle?

It is usually best to transplant crepe mrytles in the fall or late winter so the tree has all the winter months to establish a strong root system. This also minimizes transplant shock in hot summer weather.

Hope this helps.
