Crape Myrtle Trees

Crepe Myrtle

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.
