how to take pollen off a WHITE car

Hello, i need some help. I parked my car under a tree when i went to go on a 2 week tipr. I came back and the car was absoluterly filty, so i washed it and i noticed some yellow powder stuff (I assume it is pollen for mthe tree.) anyway that yellkow stuff wont come off now, ive washed it and washed but to no avail.

I've tried scraping it w/ my fingernail and some does come off (i have long fingernail cuz i play clasical guitar), but it looks like it is part of the car now and it just wont come off. It is really noticeable and is a terrible eyesore, especially when i try sooooooo hard to keep it clean and after i put hours iof work washing it. anyone know how to take it off?? ive scrubbed hard with a towel and still nothing.

Thank you for your time

the california clay bar works wonders. its worth the 18 bucks u'll drop for it. just dont use it too much cause it starts to remve a little paint. i think you should buy a car cover if you plan to keep parking under a tree.
