Crepe Myrtle Tree Not Leafing Out?

We have a line of 10 crepe myrtle trees and one of them seems to be dying. Only one branch has green leaves on it. Does anyone know about these trees/bushes? Thanks ahead of time!

Doesn't sound good on that one, you may want to try pruning out everything but the one bit showing signs of life. And you'll of course be watching the others carefully to see if they show signs of spreading disease.

You're in fantastic luck there in the Seminole area because FL has an absolutely brilliant Master Gardener website online that you can read to find out not only about your gorgeous crepe myrtles, but also all of the other gorgeous plants you can grow there:

Dig a hole by the sick tree 1 foot by 1 foot by 1 foot. Turn the diggings onto a tarp. Sift through the soil and sod, and see what bugs you find and how many. If there are more than 2 grubs or beetles in that square foot, get you a grub killer or a beetle killer and apply.
