Crape Myrtle - Knowledgebase Question

Lakeland, Fl
Question by bonlee1

I purchased 2 Crape Myrtles from Home Depot a month or so ago. Both are doing great except that one has started to get some yellow leaves. Do the yellow leaves indicate a problem? I just fertilized both with Miracle-gro.

Bonnie,

Some yellowing and loss of older foliage is normal, especially on a new plant in summer. Try to keep the soil moist but not soggy and continue to fertilize periodically to maintain moderate vigor.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
