Seeking advice on planting crape myrtle & retama trees saplings

Hi folks,
I have 6 Arapaho Red Flowering Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemi) Tree saplings, 5 retama saplings (Texas native xeriscaping shrub/tree) & 3 redbud saplings i need to put into the ground this weekend. I've planted trees before, but usually the larger size. This is the first time i'm planting trees from saplings. I've read up on the spacing (at least 12-15 ft apart, 5 ft. from the fence), but need to know whether i should brace the saplings with a stake. I've read some don't recommend tying them to a stake but i'm afraid they may be buffeted by strong winds and break.

Also, i've read saplings don't grow as fast - about 6 - 12 inches rather than up to 2 ft/year. If you've planted saplings i'd be happy to read your advice. I'm in zone 8B.

Thanks in advance,

DOJ Opens Office Of Citizenship Stripping, Because PRIORITIES!


Yesterday, the Justice Department announced the formation of a new section to enforce the president’s MAGA agenda. The Department’s Civil Division will now house a dedicated Denaturalization Section, working to strip American citizenship from “terrorists, war criminals, sex offenders, and other fraudsters.” The government needs full-time staff for all the people we’re going to be chucking out of the country.

“While the Office of Immigration Litigation already has achieved great success in the denaturalization cases it has brought, winning 95 percent of the time,” reads the DOJ press release, “the growing number of referrals anticipated from law enforcement agencies motivated the creation of a standalone section dedicated to this important work.”

“When a terrorist or sex offender becomes a U.S. citizen under false pretenses, it is an affront to our system—and it is especially offensive to those who fall victim to these criminals,” Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt announced. Which certainly makes it sound like they’re going after scary bad guys, to keep Americans safe.

Except most of the time, they aren’t.


And the MAGA racist policies continue...
