Crepe myrtle trees are a year old right now but they are not showing any signs of budding yet. We planted young trees last year. I pruned very little and we watered plenty during the drought. We did have a couple of freezes. The trees are void of any leaves yet but are sprouting from the roots, so I don't think they are dead. Shouldn't they be putting on new leaves already instead of just sprouting from the ground?
