Wilting Crepe Myrtle Branches

Anonymous added on May 10, 2011 | Answered

Planted new tree last month. It started branching out well, but the now hot weather is wilting the branches. Should I cut back now, and hope for the best?

Increase the watering and give the tree some phosphorus to help with root development. Newly planted trees are susceptible to heat stress and this is fixed by giving it more water.
