Q: What is the name of the crepe myrtle cultivar located at the wall surrounding the Auburn University Library?
Robert Harrington

A: ‘Crimson Tide’?

Q: I think we need to rename the crepe myrtles around the library ‘tippy toe looky see offense’.
Robert Harrington

A: Oooohh, that’s cold. Funny and accurate, but cold.

    The only explanation I can think of is that the tops of the grafts died and that the growth you now see is coming from the rootstocks.

    Question… Due to a move I transplanted 4 Jackson Perkins rosebushes that were full of huge beautiful blooms…to a new location…prepared soil as I did when first planting…they are growing well in their new location except they now look like tiny tearose bushes…tiny leaves…tiny buds…I am perplexed to say the least. I live in Blount and transferred them to the same county…same sun exposer etc…
