crepe myrtle

Distressing that the biggest part of the Crepe Myrtle I dug up and moved last year so far is showing no signs of growth. Just bare sticks.
Whereas the smaller part that got moved is flourishing. Here's a few shots of that (kinda hard to see against the greenery background).

O well. I still have the third one sent me by the Arbor Foundation. Although it has quite a different growth pattern; the branches seem to be growing very horizontally whereas I'm used to seeing this plant with a more vertical aspect. I wonder if I can give it a different shape by some kind of pruning later?
