Barnacle type things?
Hello! I have been a stranger on here. Did not intend to be, but it is hard enough to find the time to garden with 2 little ones, much less have time to post about it. I do have a question, though. About a month ago, I planted several monardas. They don't seem to be growing (but not dying either). This morning I decided to look at them closely and I noticed these barnacle looking things growing on the stems of one. This is also the only monarda whose stems are turning from green to brown. I also noticed similar bumps on some Easter Lillies that also seemed to have stalled out. The Easter Lillies are in the same bed as the monardas. I also have several Easter Lillies in the same bed that are doing fine. Can anyone tell me what these are and if I should be concerned? And how to get rid of them if it is a problem... I have pictures. Just trying to figure out how to post them.
