    Powdery mildew on mine as well towards the end of the season - probably as a result of a lack of rain in July/August here. Nothing to worry about.

    They are wonderful aren't they, I have them as high as the canopy of my trees here. I always look forward to the fragrance in early May, definitely one of my favourites.
