Sorry to hear that you're unsatisfied with your purchase. Crapemyrtles don't begin blooming until late Spring to early Summer so that's normal. Has it been watered regularly? Does the soil drain well? Has it been receiving around 4-6 hrs of sun a day? Have you had any cold weather? Any of these things could prevent it from growing properly. SouthernLiving

Sorry to hear it was damaged in transit. We do our best to prevent that, but sometimes shippers will put them through a lot on the road. If you're unsatisfied with your plant, be sure to contact Home Depot Customer Service about receiving a refund or replacement. SouthernLiving

Looks like it will be beautiful
I'm hoping this will grow nicely in my "zone." It's meant for "southern zones," but I thought it was worth a try. It will look very nice in my front yard. Got my fingers crossed!

TC,
Brockport, NY is in zone 6. This plant is recommended for zone 7-9, so your zone is a little on the cold side for this plant. If you plant this Crape Myrtle in the landscape make sure if/when harsh winter conditions occur in your area take precautions to protect your plant. Another option would be to plant it in a container, so that you will be able to move the plant inside during extreme conditions. SouthernLiving
