Crape Myrtle bush not growing this year
Thanks for writing. If one crepe myrtle has started growing but the other hasn't, I'd be afraid that it probably won't come back.
I wouldn't guess too much old wood would be a problem, though there are lots of reasons the tree may not have made it. But if you've had crepe myrtles in your Zone 5 yard for 8 years, I'd say you've done very, very well --- there are only a handful of crepe myrtles that do well in our cold Zone 5 winters.
