RE: Is this anthracnose on my kousa dogwood? (Follow-Up #14)

posted by: Flower_Beginner on 06.25.2013 at 05:28 pm in Trees Forum

I HAD a beautiful dogwood in my front yard. Last spring it bloomed beautifully and was doing well. Around fall, I noticed dark-brown/purple spots on the leaves right before they started falling and then one branch completely died. I originally though it was Septoria Leafspot and immediately removed all the leaves I could find with signs of it. I went down to the local garden store and bought a fungicide and treated it according to the directions. By spring of this year, my poor dogwood was dead. Later I was told by the guy that removed it, that several ornamental trees had died recently in the area and he thought it was anthracnose. My word of advice is to speak to a knowledgeable arborist before you possibly lose your tree if you think it has anthracnose. It killed my tree in 12 months.

RE: Is Endless Summer A Bust? (Follow-Up #129)

Hi Everyone,

I am fairly new to any serious kind of gardening. I bought this home a couple years ago and only now am I getting a chance to live in it and actually pay attention to the gardening. While I was gone, this hydrangea grew like crazy. I have been doing a lot of research trying to figure out why type it is and from the pictures I have seen in this forum, it may be the Endless Summer. I would love some expert opinions as well as advice on pruning it for winter since it is getting rather large. It just started really blooming about a week ago.
