Answer: Crape myrtles like well-drained soil in full sun with good air circulation. They don't need a rich soil; in fact, they bloom most profusely in soil rather low in nutrients. They don't, however, grow well in excessively dry soil, so water regularly druing the growing season.
Crape myrtles don't transplant well, so be sure to keep as much of the root ball intact as possible when planting. Good luck with your new tree!
