How are your Crepe Myrtles doing?
If anyone remembers, I told ya'll about 2 Dynamite Crepe Myrtles I planted in the front yard this spring. When they first bloomed out they looked awesome. Best red I have EVER seen in a Crepe. Thing is they really are'nt blooming very well now. They still have blooms on them but they have turned very dark and there are'nt any new blooms coming. Now, these are planted in a bed that has marigolds, ageratum, dianthus and phlox planted under and around them. I'm thinking(which is always dangerous) that I may be harming the Crepes by overwatering to keep the other plants alive. Thing is though if I don't water almost everyday(especially in this heat) the other plants will just shrivel up and die. Or is it maybe because this is their first year??? I really think I am overwatering the Crepes but what else can I do. If I don't water the trees the little plants will die>>>>> What do I do?
