Crepe Myrtles - jullmeyer - 07-10-2006

Planted "Red Rocket" crepes in Sept.2005. Pruned slightly in Feb.2006. No buds as of yet. Any Suggestions to promote buds?

You may want to google this. I found an article stating that it blooms on new wood, so pruning shouldn't hinder the flowering. It does state that you should prune in late winter early spring, so I would think what you did would be fine. Maybe it just needs a little more time to get acclimated, or mature?
