Hello my Name is Michael Leight. I live just outside of Tampa FL. I
bought a new to me house about four years ago. The house is surrounded
with beautifull Azalea's on three sides. Last summer one of the
Azalea's died, we where told it had a fungus in the root and were given
a fungicide to treat it with, but lost the plant any way. Now another
Azalea has the same symptoms. There is a white growth around the base
of the plant and some of the branches are starting to die. I have
attached a couple of pictures of the Azalea. Any help saving this large
plant will be greatly appreciated.
