Leaf damage on Virginia Creeper

Leaf damage on Virginia Creeper

I planted a Yellow Wall Virginia Creeper early this year. It has been feed with blood, fish & bone, mulched and watered as required. About 6 weeks ago it was attacked by caterpillars (I think) so I sprayed it twice with an insecticide. Now the leaves have become paper-like and some have brown patches and the underneath side has white patches. Please see photo. I would be grateful for your advice.

Brown patches might be spray damage to young leaves.

White coating is mildew, which it will probably grow out of but you might wish to spray with Roseclear if it is severe. Spray in the evening of a dull day.
