June 6th and my Crepe myrtle has no buds or leaves yet. Its a first year plant I bought mail order. I performed a scrape test and it is a healthy green down trunk 4" from ground. Temperature has been in the mid 80's-90's during day the last 2 weeks. Any idea what's going on? Thanks, Dan

Being a new planting and lack of leaf out, it's a good chance your tree did not survive.
