WANTED: new Crape Myrtle and a question

Posted by Chris_B1 (My Page) on

I planted 4 'Sanchez' crape myrtles 2 weeks ago. I started watering them every day for the first week and then 3 days a week the second week. The trees look pretty good and continued to flower after beeing planted. The one tree that gets the most sun becomes somewhat wilted during the days that it doesn't get watered. Should I water that tree more often? I am guessing that the wilting behavior will go away after the one tree gets its roots established.

thanks for any advice,

Check out the article in today's Washington Times (link below). Based on what I read, you should water newly planted myrtles.
