crepe myrtle leaf drop
Last week or two we have a crepe myrtle that is just dropping it's leaves. The leaves look pretty healthy and green -- on the ground. Some small twigs with a bunch of leaves each. Plunk! Every day my car underneath is covered with them. Another crepe myrtle (probably another variety) on the other side of the house is fine.
I don't think I've ever seen this before. I'm reluctant to believe it's fungus, because the dropped leaves look fine. Well, maybe small faint brown spots, but mostly bright green. The small faint brown spots may be because a particular leaf has been on the ground for a few days. Tree still has a lot of leaves, but it's raining leaves every day. What's going on??
This particular crepe myrtle gets a lot of shade, and has never been a profuse bloomer, but it has always been a healthy tree.
