Rust on flowers and ornamental trees

Appearing on plants, rust leads to the death, first of all, leaves, then - shoots. The diseased plant, even if it does not die immediately, most likely will not survive the frosty winter. The disease reduces winter hardiness, and in general strikes a blow to plant immunity.

Rust is not difficult to recognize. It appears on the underside of the leaf in the form of small brown-rusty outgrowths called pustules. Nodes can vary in shape and size, but their contents are the same - the fungus spores. When the pustule is cracked, the contents spill out and the spores spread to healthy plants.

The brown spots on the upper side of the leaf enlarge, merge and often cover the entire leaf. Damaged leaves rapidly lose moisture, and metabolism and photosynthesis are disrupted. The plant stops growing, new shoots stop growing, and withered leaves fall off.

If an infected plant is not treated, it will most likely have to say goodbye to it. And not only that - wind, birds and pests contribute to the rapid spread of rust. Therefore it is so important to regularly inspect your garden and at the first signs of fungus appearance take measures to destroy it.
