What could be causing spotty leaves on my Crepe Myrtles?

Over the last several days I have noticed that the leaves on my Crepe Myrtles have become very spotty.

When the weather is warm and moist, Crepe Myrtles can get infected by leaf-spotting fungi. You will see yellowish spots on the top of the leaves and grey spots on the bottom. If the spotting is bad enough to defoliate your Crepe Myrtle, you may want to treat with a fungicide.

Unfortunately I have no experience with Crepe Myrtles, but lucky for us sometimes when it comes to plants it does not matter what it is. When it comes to plants they all have one thing in common, they all need nutrients. What I would suggest is going to any planting store and getting a soil testing kit.

Well, that means your tree may be getting some kind of disease on it. This is usually caused by mites. Use some raid to battle this.

Due to the fungal attack may cause the spotty leaves on your crepe myrtles. Use gentle gungicide mixture on the spotty areas.
