Electronic download only.  The crape myrtle is a popular woody ornamental. Its deep green foliage and bright-colored blooms last throughout the summer and its interestingly textured trunk accents the landscape in winter. Despite its usual hardiness, some leaves may turn grayish white in the spring and fall--often a sign of powdery mildew. This publication covers the symptoms, cause, and control of powdery mildew on crape myrtles. Author: Kevin Ong (2 pp., 5 photos)
