The Q&A Archives: crepe myrtles

Question: Purchased three new crepe myrtles in the spring, doing well, but now are getting small brown curlups on the leaves--is this normal--is it because it is september? any food I'm not giving them?

Answer: William,

It may be due to a light infection of powdery mildew as the leaves were forming. I would not do anything now as the foliage is about to drop soon anyway.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
