White and gray discoloration on Honeysuckle vine leaves
I have two Honeysuckle vines; one growing on a wood fence on the patio and the other growing on a decorative rail close to the house. They both came in beautifully in the Spring but the leaves started to become covered with a white and grayish something and they aren't producing the flowers like at the beginning. There has been a lot of rain in the last month and I'm wondering if it is a disease, too much water or are they infested with some type of pest.

Thanks for writing. It sounds like your honeysuckles have been infected with powdery mildew, a very common disease. Powdery mildew likes moist, humid weather and shows up as a gray, white, or silver powdery-looking substance on the leaves.
