Disease has struck very quickly...

I am sure this will be an easy ID, but any idea what this is? Really seemed to happen overnight...


Should I start the daconil spraying, I assume?

Thanks for the help!

Where is it growing? Pot or ground?

What are you using for fertilizer?

How often applied? And the rate?

Hi Jean,

Growing in the ground.

We actually put 5-10-5 around the plant a week ago. This is what we usually do and have never noticed a condition like this, but we've had a lot of rain this week. Perhaps some of the grains of fertilizer drifted too close to the roots and burned up the plant?

We apply this two times a season. I'd say 1/2 cup a plant or so, give or take. Always around the whole plant, at least a few inches away.

Thanks for the help! No additional damage yet, so it seems, so I believe you may be right in that it was a fertilizer issue!
