I just had my Crepe Mrytle planted about 3 weeks ago. I have been watering it every other day as that was what I was told to do. We had a cold night 32 degrees. I have noticed that the leaves are dry and curling. Not sure if it needs more water. I am watering with my hose spraying water waiting for it to be absorbed and repeating. Here is a picture of the leaves. Any help would be great. I am located in Austin TX

Not ownce leaves fall . But, If not established, I'd be safe, and not let soil around root ball go dry, very little water. But, your rains should take care of that.
