    Hi there,

    One of my azaleas has large leaves with thickened curled tissue and they are now whitish in colour.

    It is not over the whole plant just on some sections near the tips. What would be causing this and how do I get rid of it. Can I just pull the affected leaves off or take the whole branch off?

    Any ideas??

    thanks

    Pam
