Flowers Are Drooping On One Side Of Dwarf Crepe Myrtle

Question From: H. Sanborn - La Habra Heights, California, United States
Q: I just planted a dwarf crepe myrtle On one side the branches with the flowers on it are drooping what can i do and what causes it?

A: My guess is you bought this plant from a green house or a nursery area that was covered with shade cloth and did not harden it off. When exposed to hot dry winds it. Keep the plant well watered and it should be okay. Drift from an herbicide will also damage these plants. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
