what is this??

snowburd(8b)July 21, 2014

This growing in my flower bed. I think it may be some type of fungus or mold, but I have no idea if it's bad or how to get rid of it if I need to. Please help!! Also, I'm new to zone 5, having only recently moved here (western Illinois) from NW Florida!!

Its a fungus with all the dampness this year I've had this too just mix a weak bleach solution 20 to 1 water to bleach and mist the affected area do it at mid day as bleach will dissipate in sun light or the chlorine will , the white area will turn dark in a day or so and then you clean it up and put it in the compost pile . A shop Vac. will also get rid of it. You could also just leave it . It might get bigger but shouldn't hurt any other plants it's just a little unsightly.
