our crepe myrtle droops when wet. It did that last year and we thought it was due to a fungus we had. Someone suggested we not cut it back in the fall. So we did not cut it back last fall. No fungus, but droops not that it has heavy blossoms and three branches broke off.

Anything we need to do or just let nature take it course?
