deformed new growth

TreeDazzled(z10 SF, CA)November 11, 2005

I have some fuchsia in hanging baskets in my garden. Over the course of this summer, they've gradually developed a "deformation" of some new growth. Some new growth looks normal and lovely, while other new growth is thickened and rough, almost like cauliflower. The growth is still green though, and alive. The problem is very distinctive and obvious, so I'm asssuming that somebody on this forum has seen it before. Diagnosis?

Hi there,
Not quite sure what you have, but as you live in CA, does it look anything like the picture on the link below - self explanatory - Kath:)

Here is a link that might be useful:

That sucks. You can prune and prune and any new growth will be deformed as well. Pitch them and buy some more.
