Crepe Myrtles Have Not Yet Bloomed

Question From: Randolph, New Jersey, United States
Q: Hello, I live in NJ and planted 5 crepe myrtles this year. The plants are doing fine, but they have not bloomed yet. Will they the first year of planting?

A: Crepe Myrtles can take as long as 5 years to become established in the landscape and bloom. It may happen in two, so keep your finger crossed. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
