Leaves Turning Black
My crepe myrtle trees have been in the ground for at least 4-5 years and have always been healthy. Suddenly, this summer the leaves have been turning black and falling off. Is there anything I can do or is something causing this to happen? I live in South Carolina and the weather has been extremely hot and humid but no more than normal.
