Black Fungus on Crepe Myrtle

Anonymous added on March 30, 2011 | Answered

We live in central Mississippi and have six mature Crepe Myrtle bushes. Just in the last two or three years, after they have bloomed and into the summer, they have developed a black-looking fungus or mold on the leaves. They do come back each year and look healthy for the first few months, then start turning black. How do you suggest we treat this problem?
