Crape Myrtle Trees
Q.

Crape Myrtle Issue

Zone 28078 | Amy Crawford added on July 6, 2017 | Answered

Our crepe myrtle (at least 15 years old) grew many little spikes on the trunk over the past month or so. They look like 4-inch-long pieces of angel hair pasta, sticking out all over the main trunk. Now, the branches are dying in chunks. Any idea what the problem might be? I'm not finding a match with typical myrtle tree diseases/issues.
