Transplanted crepe myrtle dead?


My husband transplanted a crepe myrtle and now it has no new growth. It is mid May in Atlanta and all of the myrtles we have seen have lots of green growth, but ours has none. If we scratch the bark, it is green underneath. Is it just stressed or dead/dying?

Thanks for your help,

sometimes crepe myrtles take a long time to leaf out. I wouldn't give up on it yet!
