Crape Myrtle pruning...need advice.

16 years ago

After reading horror stories about bad pruning of crape myrtles I am reluctant to touch mine. I have one in the ground, which is okay and has a nice shape, and below are pics of the one on my deck which looks like it needs shaping.



I've been gardening for about 2 years, and pruning intimidates me the most. I'm not sure which branches to trim back on this one. My instincts tell me to cut them back from sticking out every which way, but I can't bring myself to do it.
