Dwarf crape myrtle

Lorraine MillerJuly 24, 2014

Just brought a dwarf crape myrtle two weeks ago, now turning red and has spots on it. Will it bloom this year? How do I remove the problem and make sure it doesn't speared to my other dwarf crape myrtles

just curious...can u tell us where u purchased these? I bought a dozen of those dwarf c. m. and they all died on me. It came from a nursery in Florida. I forgot the name and I read here somewhere that others had the same problem. I can't vouch for dwarf C. M. but I have a 20' footer for 25 years and they are hard to kill. Depending on the weather they at times do get spots on the leaves. I spray with water and vinegar and it helps. Good luck
