Healthy Rhodos

Hi, can anyone offer advice.
This past spring I planted an exbury azalia, beautiful flowers, raised bed, morning semi shade afternoon more sun and shade.
Well established watering since planting.
My problem is late summer, my leaves are becoming snowy white, some are falling others not, i have been spraying with multi purpose fungacide, no great changes.
I really don't want to lose this shrub.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Ira Kirsch

Hello Ira Kirsch,

I have moved your post from Rose Forum to Tree,Surbs and Hedges Forum, which is more appropriate.

The problem you have is probably caused by humidity and warm weather. It is called Mildew.

To treat, you can dilute 1 part of milk with 2 parts of water(preferably rain water) and a tsp of baking soda. Try not to have too much excess on the leaf to drip on the soil. Spray after sunset.

Hope it helps.
