Hi,* I am new to the group, so I am sure you will be hearing alot from me.*
Last Sunday I purchased a Crape Myrtle bush for the front of my house and now it looks so sad.* The leaves are yellowing and then falling off.* The flowers on the bush are dried up and crispy.* I know the plant is getting enough water because I water it twice a day.* It is in a spot that once held a home to my Hydrangra, but relized it was to sunny and hot for the hydrangra so I moved it to the shade.* The spot gets bright light and direct sun light at the hottest time of the day for about 5 hours.* The guy at the nursery said the Crape Myrtle should do well in that spot.* I don't know if the weather has been too hot or the plant does not likes it's new home.* So my question is why do leaves yellow and fall off?* Thank you in advance for the help and advise.
