This is a Lowes Azalea (I'm still hunting for the tag). I pruned it last year and it needs a hard cut back. But I just noticed an odd branch in the new growth. Super vigorous and it appears that several shoots fused after a split. This is just growth and I didn't bind it in any way. I'm wondering if it is a witches broom from a virus or insect? But I could find no insects. From the close ups, I broke off the end of one shoot. The entire snapped off and I put it in the propagation chamber. I couldn't find anything similar on the web. Anyone seen this before?
