Is anyone growing a 'Black Diamond" crape myrtle that is thriving?

I have the pale pink flowered 'Black Diamond' (dark leaved) crape myrtle, but it isn't thriving. It hasn't grown much or bloomed since the first year I planted it which was about 3 or 4 years ago. Of course it probably hasn't helped it any that I've moved it to what I hope is a better spot last fall, but I'm wondering if maybe the cultivar is not as strong as other crapes. Anybody have any opinions on this?
