Montgomery County Maryland honeysuckle powdery mildew groundcover

This looks like powdery mildew on the honeysuckle. The honeysuckle is hardy and powdery mildew will not kill the plant. This can be common on this vine. This vine grows best in full sun to part shade. Make sure the plant is located in adequate sunlight and good air circulation to reduce humidity levels. Simply monitor the health of the plant.
