Crape Myrtle Trees

Crepe Myrtle

Anonymous added on July 10, 2015 | Answered

I planted a crepe myrtle last year at the end of summer. It was about 5 feet. It is doing great; however, I needed to move it 2 or 3 feet because I saw how wide it was getting. My question is, will it survive or did I do the wrong thing moving it in the middle of summer? It was growing great, and I hope I didn't screw it up.
