I planted a Lavender Lace Crape Myrtle 2 years ago. When it grows it only grows from ground not on branches from previous years. What can I do to fix problem?

Lavender Lace Crape Myrtle is a multi-trunked shrub. Its doing what its supposed to do.

It would be helpful to know where you are. If you're in a zone at the edge or beyond a CMs zone, it will die back and regrow from the base.

Also Welcome!

Yes, that is why I asked about location. Above-ground parts can only stay alive within the range for that. The root-hardiness-only range would extend farther north.

That is going to be at the north edge of hardiness for Lagerstroemia indica. Root-hardiness is all that is possible except maybe during the mildest winters.
