Trying to determine if this is mint rust

Ben_EAugust 3, 2012

We have a mint plant in the back yard of the house we're renting. Earlier this year, I noticed that the leaves had yellow spots on them. I did some searching around the internet, and, of course, the first thing I came upon was mint rust info. So, I begrudgingly tore and cut the plants down. I let them grow back, to see if they would come back healthy, but, sure enough, the spots are still there. Before I take a more permanent step, I wanted to verify that it is, indeed, mint rust. I'm not sure at this point. I have yet to see any pustules at all or anything actually protruding from the leaves. It has just been these yellow spots as seen in the picture. Thoughts?

tough to say without seeing the other side of the leaf.
