Just planted a crepe jasmine in a bigger pot. Now two days later the flowers are turning brown. It is on my lanai in the sun and gets plenty of rain. Is there something I need to do or not do to stop the flowers from turning brown?
Probably the stress related to the repotting is causing this. It is nothing to worry about right now. You can simply trim off the dead growth/flowers. The plant should recover on its own.
Will a pruned branch of a crepe jasmine develop into a tree by just planting it or should I keep it in water until roots develop?
You can propagate Crepe Jasmine from root cuttings. It is a little more work than just planting a cutting or putting in water, but very doable!

Hello.... my crepe jasmine is in a pot on my patio, live in Arizona, so I make sure it stays out of the hot sun but gets lots of light. It has started to drop leaves, green leaves. What could be wrong with it? Thanks for any help. I really love this plant, so attractive with its shiny green leaves and beautiful white flowers.

I have vintage Cape Jasmines, handed down from generations. I live close to Huntsville Texas. Last year and this year my Cape Jasmines are beginning to die off one by one. When I dug one dead one up there were tiny, tiny bugs under the roots. I could not tell if they were ants or spiders or what. I don't want to lose my vintage Cape Jasmines and I am trying to root more. Do you have any idea what this is and how to treat it.

Where can I buy a crape jasmine plant in Sprinbg Hill, FL 34606
We do not usually recommend places to purchase. I would check your local nurseries, and if that doesn't help, then many online nurseries will ship to just about anywhere.
I have one main crepe myrtle tree however there are many new ones popping up throughout my whole garden. There must be at least 15. How do I stop that from happening?
It sounds like they are self seeding! This is quite rare, but likely means you obtained a naturalized cultivar rather than a modern hybrid.
Those unlucky enough to have one of these will notice, quickly, how much of a pain in the behind they will become.
Other than keeping them cut to the ground, applying pre-emergents, and applying weed barriers, there isn't much that you can do.
