Question 3

Why is the bark falling off of my crape myrtles?

This is absolutely and totally a normal occurrence. Many crape myrtles have exfoliating bark. It peels off in long hunks, often exposing glossy, honey-color trunks. Some cultivars, such as Natchez, have beautiful cinnamon-colored bark. In all cases, the peeling bark is completely harmless.
