Crape Myrtle is not blooming
Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) is happiest in hot weather and a sunny location. If your crape myrtle is in too much shade, it won't bloom well. Another possibility is if you've fertilized turf nearby with a high-nitrogen fertilizer, that nitrogen would push all plants to produce a lot of green, leafy growth at the expense of flowers. If you'd like, you might want to fertilize your crape myrtle with a granular slow-release fertilizer that is higher in phosphorous. Look for a fertilizer package with a high middle number; something like 5-10-5, for example. One application per year is plenty.
