  • Advice for the Crape Myrtle grower...and more

    Several folks have spoken to me about their Crape Myrtles this season. Some are not blooming at all, some bushes blooming just sporadically, and apparently none are as resplendent as usual.
    I agree.
    My new healthy Crape Myrtles look as bedraggled as my older bush, and bless its heart, it is in full pout. You would think that the mild weather, and lots and lots of water would be beneficial. Well, we would all be wrong.
    I scurried off to research land to find out the trouble, and there it is. Crape Myrtles like their feet to be dry between good drinks.
