Crepe Myrtle Had Many Buds But None Opened

Q: Moves into a new home in SC - have a crepe myrtle that had a gazillion buds but none opened and we had no blooms all summer. What can the problem be and how can we remedy it?

A: I don't have a crystal ball so I can't help you. If it were my tree I would get an onsite inspection from a trained tree expert, a certified arborist. To find one in your area go to and enter your zip code. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
