Yes, you can, you score it a few times with a sharp knife, use good "potting soil" in a 3 gal. Pot, use pine mulch in bottom of, so soil won't come out when watering and in a couple of weeks you should have a "rooted" crape myrtle. I would suggest you leave in pot for at least 6 to 8 mos. To be sure it is rooted well. Good luck.

Yes you can.
Cut a branch, put it in a flower pot with a good potting soil mixture and keep it watered regularly so that it can sprout some roots, then transplant it into the ground once it starts bushing out a little.
You can also dip the end of the branch into some Root Tone before putting it in the pot of garden soil to ensure faster root sprouting.
