Crape Myrtle Trees

Transplanted 10 Year Old Crepe in Jan. And It Hasn’t Yet “Sprouted”

It's green and healthy looking under the bark but no hint of putting on branches. In the past I've trimmed it at the same spot each year which has created a "nub". I know now this is the wrong way to do it, but it seemed to work in the past. Should I cut the "nubs" off or just try to be patient? It looks healthy!

If it is still green and pliable, I would give it some more time. It may be late due to the stress of the move, and additional trimming will only stress it further.
