Crape Myrtle Trees

Crepe Myrtle Trunk Turned Black


Anonymous added on March 29, 2011 | Answered

We had an extremely harsh winter this year. One of my crepe myrtles has turned completely black. The tree which turned black is the most exposed of the seven trees at the back of the fence line. I have noticed that one near the opposite end appears to be turning black as well. Any ideas?

It is most likely the cold. This cold has damaged many plants this year. If the branches are still alive, they will regrow their leaves.
