Crape Myrtle Trees

Yellowing of the Leaves

Anonymous added on July 11, 2011 | Answered

Bought two crape mytle trees a month ago and they are tall. We started off putting root stimulator in the hole, then the tree, and then put Miracle Gro ground soil; but one of the tree's leaves are turning yellow and the leaves are wilting. What can I do to save this tree?
