mildew on plants

Hi I have some ajuga reptans (think thats correct) its a dark foliage with blue flowers and is a ground cover plant. I have noticed that the leaves appear to have mildew on them- any ideas how I can tackle this problem?



3 choices, 1 ignore it and in winter it will disappear, 2. Spray the plant with a systemic fungicide. 3 Spray the plant with a solution of 1 part full cream milk to 9 parts water (organic fungicide).
Bad year for most fungus problems this one, cool and damp followed by cool and dry whci is what mildew just loves!

Ignore it, but suggest you cut it back hard first.
