The most common azalea diseases affecting these shrubs include: Azalea Gall – This azalea disease commonly occurs in early spring on new leaf growth. The leaves become curled, fleshy, and pale green to white. Affected leaves eventually turn brown and should be removed and destroyed. Another pest is the lace beetle so you need to check the undersides of infected leaves to see if you can see dirt(lacewing beetles).
