I have these horrible white whatever on the back side of my leaves. I notices it when some leave were looking funny. They curled up and were a pale green. When I cut it off I saw the white stuff on the back of MANY MANY leave on the bush. Help

This is cottony camellia scale. It is a type of insect. This explains it:

If you spray crawlers now with horticultural oil or soap, read the label very carefully and follow directions for the temperature limits, so you do not burn the leaves.
