When do crepe myrtles bloom?
We bought a crepe myrtle from a nursery two springs ago but it still has not bloomed. Last year we just presumed it was due transplant shock, even though it was very healthy and grew lots of big green leaves and branches. This year it is again very green and healthy but it is now August and there is no sign of any bud formation. We have not pruned it, it gets lots ans lots of sun, and it has it's own drip line on our irrigation system. Should we see signs of bud formation by August?
