   No, I do not cut back the crapes.  Most people around here give them 
three 'canes' and let them grow as trees.  There is some mild pruning but no
real cutting back.  To me the bark is as interesting as the bark on River Birch.

  Crapes grow well all over the south and into West Texas.  There long bloom
season is a definite attribute too.
