Lilac Bark Problem

Posted by geryoung PA (My Page) on

Need help. Whitish/gray mildew patches beginning at the base of my lilac covering the branches and bark but not on the leaves. When the mildew is wiped away there appears under the mildew a yellowish substance and the residue from wiping is white and granular/particulate. Leaves have started to fall. Would love to know what I am fighting and how to treat it.

RE: Lilac Bark Problem

You should post this to another forum, perhaps a general gardening forum, a flowering shrubs, forum, something like that. This is a native plants forum, and lilac is not a native plant. I myself haven't seen this problem on lilacs -mildew on the leaves at this time of the year is common and apparently not very harmful.
