White stuff on shrub

Not sure if this should be posted in the Gardening sub-forum, but here it goes...

Right outside, there are three shrubs. All need some care, but we haven't gotten around to it yet (only been here for 2 weeks ...). Today, I noticed that one has white stuff all over it. I assume some kind of fungus or disease? I happen to have a picture of it from the 14th too, albeit a different angle, but no white stuff. Any ideas? First pic is the one from a week ago. The others from today.

Re: White stuff on shrub

It looks like a powdery mildew or something similar. Best to take those pics into a local nursery and get their opinion as well as a treatment option. I don't think it is particularly damaging and fairly easy to eradicate.
