China Girl Holly has black coating

Zone Massachusetts | ronaldallard added on June 17, 2015 | Answered

China Girl Holly has black coating on inside branches and leaves. How do I get rid of these? After this awful winter I have noticed that the holly has a black coating covering wood and leaves but only inside the bush. The outer leaves and wood looks OK?
