Keeping this in view, can you root crepe myrtle cuttings in water?
Dip each end into the rooting hormone and place the cuttings in a pot of moist sand and potting mix about 3-4 inches (7.5-10 cm.) deep. Cover with a plastic bag to keep them moist. Rooting usually take s place within 4-8 weeks.

- Cut a 4- to 5-inch-long (10 to 12 cm) stem (or side shoot) just below a leaf, and remove all but two or three leaves at the top.
- Dip the cut end into rooting hormone.
- Insert the cutting into a box or container, filled with about 3 inches (8 cm) of moistened pure builder's sand, vermiculite, or perlite.

Place a clear, plastic bag upside down over the pot to retain moisture in the air around the soil. Leave the seed to germinate over a period of two to three weeks.
Can you split a crepe myrtle?
As we always say, listen to your tree. If the limbs on your crape myrtle are sagging or drooping, then there are too many flowers on the branch for adequate support and even a mild rain could split the tree. Also, the number of flowers you will potentially have to remove depends on the maturity of the tree.
