I have lots of Natchez crape myrtles that have what I think is cercospora leaf spot on them. I sprayed them with daconil. Is that going to help and are my trees in real danger. It has been very wet this year. I have picked off as many leaves as I could and also picked them up of the ground also to try to keep it under control.

    It does look like cercospora. Much to Walter’s chagrin I’ll share this University of Alabama link regarding recommended treatments: http://www.aces.edu/pubs/docs/A/ANR-1047/ANR-1047.pdf
    Also the Daconil label does not include Crape Myrtle as a listed ormamental.

    I had a chagrin…but I lost it recently.

    @Walter Reeves, well that’s a challenge and much to my chagrin I have no clue where to begin other than go Dawgs, alive at #5. Pulling for Georgia and anyone that plays Alabama. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1723673-usa-today-preseason-college-football-rankings-2013-complete-order-released
