Azalea stems black

Last year I noticed a green fungus starting on outer stems of my azalea plants. Leaves and flowers were smaller than other branches without fungus. This year I noticed along with smaller leaves and flowers the stems have turned black. I don’t see any nymphs sucking along bark as I have on my holly bushes. Can these be saved? Can I treat with a horticultural oil like Neem?

What do you know about the African Okra and how it got to the Caribbean? I had an interesting story from a very old lady in the West Indies.

red twig dogwood attacked

Hello. Looking for some help in identifying what is attacking our red twig dogwoods and what do do about it. They were planted in the spring (bought at the Wissahickon Valley Watershed plant sale) and have been doing well until very recently. I have attached photos. Thank you, Bruce Morris

I am trying to raise native tube dwelling bees. I have opened my tubes from last fall and found probably mason bee cocoons. They are silky fiber sacks, lots of frass and pollen remnants, mud plugs and dividers. The tubes are Phragmites reeds about 5-7mm diameter. In 2 tubes there was something different. These cocoons looked like shiny, dark wooden pegs with slightly wider, rounded tops. The plugs looked like muddy sawdust, lighter than the mason mud plugs. There was not much frass. I hope these are also beneficial pollinators? thank you
