I remember years ago when I was working part time in a local garden center during the summer for something to do,
people would bring in their Crepe Myrtle
swearing that it was dead.
Of course it was usually late May , early June.
Often they had dug it up already but if not,
"Patience" was our response.
This is only the second year for this one but as you can see,
it has new growth coming up around it's base .
When this matures a little , I will remove the "dead" branches.
Have a fun weekend..
Happy Fathers Day to all you Dads.
