I have a crepe myrtle tree that has been in my front yard for the last 5 years. Early this spring I pruned it to clear out some dead blooms from the previous year. It is now mid June and all my crepe myrtle has produced is new shoots around the bottom of the tree. There is no new growth on the top branches. What can I do? Is this normal?
