Disease on my Crape Jasmine 'Flora Pleno'

sailorgirl1October 10, 2011

During the summer the month of July was unusually hot 95 plus degrees without rain. My plant had been re-potted in a medium soil with good drainage and topped with basic fertilizer. In the beginning it was doing fantastic adding new growth, flower buds etc and then a very rainy August hit.

Suddenly my Jasmine developed yellow leaves with black spots looking very much like a canker disease and now there is rust on the undersides of the leaves. I brought the plant inside, it's dropped so much of it's foliage and I've let it dry somewhat.

I've been searching the web and to no avail not a whole lot of info on this type of problem due to most Jasmines being so hardy and resistant to diseases. I would appreciate any help on this before I go and pitch the plant I'd like to see if I can bring it back to life.

Thanks to this forum I'm sure someone out there can give me some advice!

It sounds like you have Tabernaemontana divaricata 'Flore Pleno' which is not a true jasmine.
It also sounds like you've got some kind of fungus problem. Have you tried a fungicide yet or have you asked a local nursery or extension center? They're probably familiar with diseases in your area.

Good luck!
