Good Morning!

I need a few questions answered to better know what your azaleas have.

is the coating actually soft and spongy? Or if you press it mess comes out?

Are they azaleas performing well and have good flowers/foliage?

Are the branches that are coated dead?

If possible, include a picture.

Your other option would be to take a sample of the coated branches over to the Schillinger Road offices (1070 Schillinger Rd N, Mobile, AL 36608) of the Cooperative Extension for the horticulturists there to identify the problem in person.
