Howdy,

I have had to trim back quite a few dead branches (mostly new upper growth from prior year) from one of my crepe myrtles for the past two years. It has always grown really fast, but then a lot of the new growth dies off.

With the wet spring, it has REALLY taken off this season, but I'm posting a pic of the bark to ask if this looks "normal". It seems "flakier" and rougher than any I've ever seen. Here's the pic:

It has always flowered, but this year it is especially blossoming...and the seeds are dropping and spring up new trees all around the base of the tree. I have never noticed this activity before and am wondering if this is a result of tree stress or just the wet weather we've had this year.

The root flare is exposed and I have given it all the ingredients of the sick tree treatment over the past couple of years. Any and all thoughts are appreciated.

Regards,

Dom

Normal crepe myrtle! More growth than usual so it sheds more 'bark'.

Thanks Patty,

The bark is a lot "rougher" than all my other crepe myrtles and I have never noticed so many of the seeds growing undernearth the tree...therefore I thought I would ask.

Thanks again for your reply.

Dom
