Crape Myrtles and Indian Hawthrone
We just moved into our home (north Texas) and we had a Natchez Crape Myrtle planted and 2 Dwarf Myrtles. We had a few Hawthrone's planted also. Our soil is clay and our yard has been being watered 2x's a day during the 30 day period allowed for new yards.
The myrtles are not blooming, though. They seemed to have bloomed slightly at first and then started losing the flowers. On the Myrtle tree, there's some yellowing of the leaves and curling. The Dwarfs look like seeds now. These plants are in full sunlight all day.
The Hawthrone's are not blooming at all, but I'm assuming they take time?
Do the Myrtles need more water since it's been so hot? Or are we just not going to see much in blooming due to when these plants were planted (end of July)? I don't know what else to do for these Myrtles.
