Whitethorn leaves going white?

David Peavoy asked 12 years ago

Mixed hedge planted 2 years ago. Clipped back last Februray, grew great this year. Over the last month however leaves on whitethorns plants only have gone white and some of the trees are starting to look dead. Do you have any idea what it is and can it be cured.

This white coating is powdery mildew which is a disease of the foliage but the plants will out-grow this.
