Crepe Myrtle Trees That WON’T Bloom


jimmythewarrior added on July 28, 2012 | Answered

I am in central NC where crepe myrtle trees grow very common, but I seem to have 2 trees in our yard that WON'T BLOOM. One of them is 2 years old the other about 4 years old. There are other crepe myrtle trees within 10-20 feet of the 2 that won't bloom that are blooming beautifully. Can anyone explain this? Is there such a thing as ones of the other sex that don't bloom? Do I need to get rid of these I have and find ones that are blooming before I buy them?? PLEASE help! :)

The soil could be lacking phosphorus. A soil test wiuld confirm this but it wouldn't hurt to add some bone meal to the soil to help encourage blooming.
