The Q&A Archives: Broken Off Chica Red Dwarf Crepe Myrtle
Question: My crepe myrtle, Chica Red Dwarf, purchased last summer was broken off at its roots this winter. I think I see a sign of a shoot appearing. Could this be the start of a viable dwarf tree starting?
Answer: I'm sorry your plant was damaged--that's always frustrating. If its root system was well-established and not damaged, it could sprout new growth. It's worth waiting for awhile to see how it does.
