I was raking the other day and noticed this white crud on a shrub/tree (don't know what it is..was planted when we got the place). The stuff is thick like damp powder..when I rubbed it,it left kind of a yellow/orange residue. Took a look through a magnifing glass and saw no movement. Any ideas and how do I get rid of it?? Thanks, Ginger

If it was spring would think of pollen, but don't know at this time of year. MAYBE A FUNGUS?????

It looks like a powdery mildew, maybe. Can you get a closer picture? If you have a county extension office near by, a scraped sample might help them ID it for you. Can't tell...Sorry!
