Answer: You might want to consult with your county extension as to the specific cause of the problem, since both lacebugs and mildew could cause the symptoms you described. They should also be able to tell you how to treat the problem depending on which it is. Ask them soon, because lace bugs would be treated beginning very early in the season. In the meantime, clean up and remove any fallen azalea foliage. I'm sorry about your plants.
