White stuff on Crape myrtle

huanglee(9)May 7, 2014


I have a new Crape Myrtle and recently I found some white stuff (like powder) at the edge of leaves. Not much and most them are at the new leaves. I thought it is fungus but my gardener said it is not. I would like to get a second opinion on what it is. could someone please help?

I got the tree less than a year. It is roughly 6 feet tall and looks very OK. Please let me know if more info is needed and thank you in advance.

Sorry, the picture isn't helpful. Any chance of a closeup?
