Powdery mildew attacks crepe myrtles and other plants especially during humid weather. One control is to apply horticultural (whole ground) cornmeal to the root zone at 2 lbs. per 100 sq. ft. and spray the foliage with Garrett Juice. Cornmeal juice is made by soaking a pound of cornmeal in 5 gallons of water. Put the cornmeal in a nylon bag made from old panty hose or whatever to keep the larger particles from getting in the water. This cornmeal juice can be sprayed alone or mixed with compost tea or Garrett Juice.

There is usually a yellow halo around the dark spot. Entire leaves then turn yellow and ultimately die.
