@bouteloua any idea of why some Autumn Olive leaves get this coloration?

First photo shows Albugo candida with the (greyer) downy mildew Hyaloperonospora lunariae, itself a new record for New Zealand (which I can't add because the NZOR lookup isn't working). The latter species seems to be consistently associated with the former across several sites in Chch.

I wonder, because this website

says about Downy Mildew:

"Early symptoms are usually noticed as light green or yellow angular patches on the upper leaf surfaces. ... Perennials commonly troubled by downy mildews include artemisia, aster, centaurea, coreopsis, geum, lupinus, potentilla, rudbeckia, veronica, and viola."

On Nandina domestica -- Heavenly Bamboo. The other plants nearby (there is a row of them which were all put in at the same time) have grown normally and done well, but this one is extremely stunted -- it has been this tiny for three years! The leaves are also narrower than they should be, and they curve downwards.

I am guessing this is caused by a virus.

This site,

http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/GARDEN/PLANTS/DISEASES/nanvirus.html

says:

"Cucumber mosaic virus infection causes wine red discoloration of new spring growth in nandina. Leaves may be thinner (more narrow in width) than normal and cupped downward. There may be fewer flower buds and berries on infected plants."

"Plantago asiatica mosaic virus causes a relatively mild mosaic; the reddening of foliage may not be very intense or extensive. There may be stunting and leaf distortion of infected Nandina."

Unusual red spots on Hedera helix leaves.
I found the following info here:

http://www.ivy.org/about_bv3.htm

Ivy leaf spot can be caused by a variety of fungus species as well as bacteria. Fungus Leaf Spot can be caused by Colletotrichum trichellum, Amerosporium, Glomerella, Phyllosticta, and Ramularia. They appear as irregular tan to brown spots or may cause marginal browning of the leaf edges.

Bacterial Leaf Spot is caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. Hederae. It first appears as a light green or water-soaked to oily circular spots. As the disease progresses the spots will enlarge and turn dark brown to black. There may also be a yellow to red halo around the spot. Petiole and stem cankers can also develop.
