I have Podophyllum pleianthum growing in my garden in North Carolina. For the second year in a row it has yellow spots on the leaves. On the back if the leaves there are tiny dark brown spores behind the yellowed spots. Is this some sort of fungus? If so how do I treat it? Last year the leaves developed huge holes and withered up.

Any help will be appreciated!
Thanks,
Sally B
