When will my Crepe Myrtle wake up?
Hi everyone. I've just started gardening in the past couple of years, and the forums have been a lot of help. I've done something stupid this year--something that can be added to my long list of newbie mistakes. I carefully planned and planted a lovely shade garden for around the base of my Crepe Myrtle: Coleus (grown from seed indoors), Begonias, and various types of Impatiens. But, I planted them all before the tree came out of dormancy, and they are literally FRYING in the sun. Does anyone know when I can expect to see new growth on a Crepe Myrtle in suburban MD? From the research I've done, it seems like it might be an Arapaho. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!
