Q.Crepe Myrtle

Zone 08848 | Zepolnarf added on February 3, 2018 | Answered

We just moved to a new home in central west New Jersey in mid November. There is an overgrown Crepe Myrtle next the house. It is now the beginning of February. Is it unusual that the leaves have not fallen off? They are brown.

No, this is very common. Some varieties will hold on to the old leaves until the new ones start to replace them. Here is an article for more information on their care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/crepe-myrtle/crepe-myrtle-care.htm
