Omg! What’s that white stuff leaking out of my Crape Myrtle!

Well, I do believe it’s…

Turkey Tail Fungus.

This fungus is growing on a couple crape myrtles in a row planting. Out of the eight crapes, three have this fungus growing out of the trunks along splits in the bark. All three are next to each other and these three are noticeably smaller than the other crapes. The crapes are alive, but I’d imagine not for long…

Pretty cool stuff.
