My Crepe Myrtle Went Dormant in the Fall

My crepe myrtle has not bloomed after our very cold (and much snow) winter here on Staten Island. What should I do? Will it bloom at some point?

Provided that the tree is leafing out and was not killed by the cold, it is very likely that the reason it is not blossoming is that the flower buds were killed by the cold. Flower buds tend to be more tender than the leaves and are more prone to cold damage, especially if you had a late frost.

The tree should bloom fine next year, as long as it does not stay cold too late.
