I was thinking of keeping them a good distance apart from each other (about 10 feet) , but, I didn't even think about how close I was to the fence.
I have three Tuscarora crape myrtles about 4 feet from my fence. Is that too close? Should I move them farther away?
Did I plant my Tuscarora crape myrtles too close to the fence?
It won't be a problem if you are planning on limbing it up to grow like a tree. You can remove all the branches below the fenceline so that the limbs will be above the top of the fence. If you are going to let it grow like a shrub, then it might be too close.
