Plant Identification

Asked September 28, 2019, 9:37 PM EDT

We recently moved to a single family house. I am trying to identify some plants. Can you identify this plant and the white powdery stuff on leaves?

That is a crapemyrtle shrub, which blooms in late summer on plants of various sizes.
The white on the leaves is powdery mildew, to which this plant is susceptible.
There are some newer varieties that are bred with some resistance to this common problem.
