Crepe Myrtle Problems

The leaves of my crepe myrtle, pink bloom, are turning brownish yellow. The bark seems to be darkening and the bloom was limited. I planted it during the spring. It gets at least 8 hours of direct sunlight in TX. There are some bugs and webs on it, similar to those I find on my red tips. Any ideas?
