Question From: Apex, North Carolina, United States
Q: It's spring here in NC, I have 2 crepe mytles one growing with new growth beautifully, is no new growth and leaves Curled up as in praying, said here please help me. Thank you very much. Jules

A: Jules, Take a few cuttings in a plastic bag to an independent garden center or nursery that sells these plants for an accurate Id and advice on what to do. I have no experience with crepe myrtles as I live in chilly zone 5. May be aphids or some sort of disease. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
