I searched the forum for rust but did not see anything that looks like my problem. I have two different plants with the same problem. I had it last year and now it is back again. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Pictures of the two plants are attached.

Looks more like environmental effects.

RE: Would this be considered rust??

Hi Jean ty for the response. I live on top of a mountain and I don't live near any coal mines. The soil they are in is clay. Could it be the mulch?? These particular plants are near wild daisy plants I got from the fields. I dont water them often but we have had alot of rain this year. I have more of these plants that are not near daisy's and they look fine.

After I see this stain the leaf turns yellow and dies.

RE: Would this be considered rust??

"Environmental" includes air, water, temperature and light exposure.

So the next step is up to you to do your homework: Think back to determine what went wrong within the past month or so.

RE: Would this be considered rust??

Okie..I mentioned the air (mountains), said it rained a lot and they are in clay.

The ones I missed are: The temps in the 70's and 80's... they get about 6 hours of sun.

I have 6 of them all in the same growing conditions as mentioned above. Two of them have this problem the rest are fine.

I had this issue with them last year too.
