not sure of the exact type, but I have a large pink azalea which has white spots all over the leaves on new growth then they turn brown and the backs of leaves have rust colored specks all over them. Please help me.

It's hard to be sure without a photo, but while azaleas do get rust, I suspect you are seeing lace bug damage. Why don't you do an image search and compare to the symptoms your plant is exhibiting....

Let us know if that isn't it, we'll go from there.
