Notes:

As you can see my Kramer’s Supreme Camellias are not looking good. There is some type of growth on the underside of the leaves. The bushes are about 10 years old and full of buds but the plants do not have a reach green healthy looking leaf. We mulched and fertilized back in the fall. Is there something I can spray to kill whatever is happening to them?

    Looks like powdery mildew. It’s a common fungal disease and your local garden center or any shop with a garden section should have several products that could fix it. That sheltered position up against the house and under the eaves probably doesn’t help as good air circulation is one of the best preventatives.
