white stuff all over many plants
This is so weird. I went out to check on the garden, after almost a straight week of rain, and found some sort of white substance all over my plants. I have a large bed with a variety of plants, and there is this stuff on all of them. Because of the shear magnitude of this, I don't really think it can be a disease or bug, at least I hope not. It's on the peonies, the hosta, the catmint, the heliopsis, etc...It is not just in the leaf axils, and not just on the leaves, but sort of scattered. As if someone took a bowl of something and just blew it all over. It's sort of haphazardly blown around. Kind of cottony, but all different sizes. Like I mentioned earlier, it has been raining a lot, and the trees have all been dropping their litter everywhere. There are mainly oaks, maples, and redbuds in this general area. I took a picture, but could not get a clear shot. But it does show the general placement of these specks. (it's the white stuff on leaves.) I would be so appreciative of any ideas on what it might be, or what to do now? Thank you for reading this long post.
