Powdery mildew is probably the most common garden fungus around. It is not too terribly picky about where it spreads; it likes humid and dry weather, thrives in the heat of the summer and is hard to control once it has started.
The trick here is to prevent it from happening by proper plant selection and placement and adopting good cultural practices. Most powdery mildew problems won’t do too much harm but some plants suffer decline if it is a repeat problem.
