The Q&A Archives: Lagerstroemia indica

Question: I recently plant this little tree of Lagerstroemia in my backyard and have the leaf color yellowish and little red, and the leaf are falling down what would be the problem?

Answer: Crape myrtle grows well in Puerto Rico so I think the problem is a little transplant shock. Soon your new tree will adjust to growing in your yard. There's nothing you need to do except water it well once a week until it adjusts. You will see new growth when it is established. Enjoy your new tree!
