Great examples of breaking down the 'what's wrong' analysis into easy steps. Loved that you follow up your own assessments with additional offline research. I now have several next steps to understand why some of our crape myrtles don't bloom.

We have very large crape myrtle trees that bloom all summer. They are too close to our pool and dump blooms everywhere. Is there a way to stop them from blooming? We love the trees but hate the mess and clean up.

Have a crepe myrtle in my front yard. Was planted in 19 when the house was built. Full sun, natural area 3 foot circumference around it. From 19-early spring 21 we had a company the aerated, fertilized, etc…with no effect whatsoever on our grass, so I canceled the service. Tree has NEVER bloomed! Grass does not “grow”. It’s that centipede crap that builders use. It turns green in spring and summer but we only need to mow because of weeds. Tree is in the middle of this yard. What could be the problem? Also, we live about 7 miles inland on the east coast in NC.

Kerry-I would contact your local master gardener program for help. If you can tell me the county, I might be able to connect you to someone in NC. Thanks,Jennifer

Plenty of sun warmer daily but maybe need to let water run slowly on it, rose of Sharon looks sick no blooms either?
