Answer: Light green or yellowish patches on leaves sometimes accompanied by brown spots on the back side of leaves is a sign of rhododendron powdery mildew (Microsphaera azaleae). A fungicide should help stop the progression of the disease. Or you may want to prune them back a little to remove the fungal spores and to open them up to better air circulation. Good luck with your azaleas!
