My new little azalea was fine for the last several months. Then the other day I found the leaves looking like this. What might be wrong? I'm posting pictures of tops and bottoms of leaves. Thank you! Terri

I'm in 7b Georgia.

I think your azalea has bugs. Maybe broad mites or lace bugs, the damage isn't too bad yet.

Thank you! I have some neem oil and will check to see if that may help.

Are they red spider mites? You can tell by running your fingers on both sides of the leaf...if they come away with reddish stuff on them, it is read spider mites.
