Notes:

I have 2 camellia trees ea. a different variety. Both planted in my backyard; one on the NE side having less problems with these diseases than the 1 on the SW. Back yard is adjacent to woods with tall sun blocking trees. Pix 1 is underside of leaves from SE tree & pix 2 is underside of ones from NE tree -showing more of the brownish black which I can’t identify; I thought the white to be powdery mildew. Treatment chlorine water solution washed off by hand followed by ‘Organocide’. Pix 3 new.

    Looks like scale, very common on camellias.
