For the second year in a row my 10 yr old crepe myrtle has come out with nothing but clusters of small leaves along the branches. I have not pruned for 2 yrs. The clusters will persist through the summers, but never expand past the clusters. The spiky clusters are also all along the trunk, though I try to remove these to divert energy to leafing out the rest of the tree. I have searched everywhere for answer, but have come up empty.
