Crape Myrtle Trees

Crape Myrtle Tree


Anonymous added on June 18, 2012 | Answered

I planted a young burgundy with white flowering crape according to directions. I watered well. I noticed overnight the leaves are a little drier and curling. When I planted it, it looked much more moist and healthier. It is in sun and I firmly believe I planted it well. Can it be in shock? I do not believe it has fungus or disease. What can I do. . . just sit and wait?

It's probably just suffering from stress-related shock from the transplanting. Newly planted trees need lots of water for the roots to establish. These articles should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/watering-newly-planted-tree.htm
