    Hello everyone: I was looking at my azaleas this morning hoping I could see some seed pods since they have finished flowering. Then I saw a strange type of growth on my azalea leaves and I am not sure what it is... fungus or something else. I have two large azalea in my backyard but only one of them has these growths on it. They sit right next to each other. The azalea have many of these growths on it. Can anyone ID this growth? Thanks.
