My new Yorktown, VA home is home to four Crepe Myrtles planted 3 seasons ago. Why aren't they blooming, while clippings from them are blooming furiously? What can I do to help them flower?

How odd! The crepe myrtles are obviously not happy where they are planted and the clippings are getting different exposure to sunshine, different soil or different amounts of water. You might try moving your crepe myrtles or replacing them with clippings that you know will bloom.
