Alexis-
Sounds like black spot or a mold to me. You can check out all the remedies on the home page-easiest is probably mixing a little soda & H2O & spraying them. It's probably b/c we had sooo much rain. I'd transplant after the 1st freeze, if we have one!
good luck-
Patty

Hi Alexis,

You should find this site helpful as well.

Although the canopy of a crapemyrtle may have lost its leaves in the fall, the roots typically remain active later into the fall and early winter. Crapemyrtles transplant easily so they can be moved in the landscape. Move them during the fall or late winter.
