Crepe Myrtle Has Not Leafed Out

Anonymous added on May 25, 2011 | Answered

I live in KY and last year I set out 3 crepe myrtles and watered them religiously. It is now late May and the branches have no leaves. There are new shoots coming up from the ground. What should I do? I have never had crepe myrtles before and don't want to lose them.
