Crepe Myrtles are known for their lush foliage and colourful hues that change colour with the seasons. They embellish parks and gardens across Australia thanks to their clusters of flowers that resemble a tropical cherry blossom.
Australia’s temperate northern and cool southern regions make for excellent zones for several varieties of Crepe Myrtles. There are original species from eastern Asia, native Australian Crepe Myrtles, and the popular Diamonds in the Dark series that all paint a colourful cacophony across the land down under.
Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) belongs to the Lythraceae family that is native to East Asia. This deciduous tree is known for its vase shape and comes in several sizes, colours, and hybrids.
It usually grows dark green leaves in early spring and can be planted at any time or season.
Moreover, Australia’s native Crepe Myrtles (Lagerstroemia archeriana) can grow up to 8 metres tall and bloom pinkish mauve flowers. This species can grow under Australia’s blistering sun and loves well-draining soil—typical in most Australian gardens.
Crepe Myrtle trees come in dwarf, medium-height, and tall varieties. Regardless of your variant, it should mature at around 5 to 10 years and live for roughly 25-50 years.
So if you have a mature myrtle tree in your garden that needs trimming or want to cut it down to give way to other flora, our Sydney arborists have you covered.
Nobody can deny the beauty of Crepe Myrtle in full bloom. But despite its characteristics as an excellent landscape eye candy, sometimes it’s necessary to take it down for safety or regulatory compliance.
Medium and tall Crepe Myrtles grow from 3 to 5 metres in width and have shallow and fibrous roots and don’t have deep taproot systems. Its roots extend up to 3 times the canopy, covering a considerable distance.
That said, diseased and old Crepe Myrtles can pose health and safety risks to landowners and locales. But while it’s not a massive tree compared to oaks and evergreens, removing trees without the right gear, skillset, and knowledge can be dangerous.

Thanks to their relatively small sizes, Crepe Myrtles are the go-to solution for smaller gardens. They also make excellent garden trees to grow in a large pot.
Many Sydneysiders grow Crepe Myrtles as a hedge to line their yard and garden, making pruning and trimming optional and necessary. Thanks to its generous bloom, it also attracts bees and birds, making it a lush and colourful border for your property.
Like every plant and tree in our list, maintaining a Crepe Myrtle as a shrub, tree, or hedge is both science and art. To bring out its full splendour, our expert arborist examines your plant’s structure to redirect growth into the most desired branches and remove early signs of disease.
Depending on the tree’s size, age, and health condition, the skills required in pruning and trimming a Crepe Myrtle will vary. It’s best to have a professional prune the tree to maximise its strength and overall health.
