Will impending sleet/ice damage newly planted crepe myrtle trees?
I'm in Fayetteville, NC, and a winter storm warning is in effect for this area with sleet and ice for tomorrow night and Saturday. I have two very large Natchez Crepe Myrtle trees that were planted in Dec. - just 7 weeks ago - and am hoping the sleet and ice won't cause a problem. I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to lessen the chance of damage to them such as trying to keep the ice from accumulating by spraying the trees with water throughout the evening. They are about 18 ft. high, beautifuly shaped, expensive trees! Thank you in advance for any advice - or encouragement!
