Honeysuckle - what's wrong?

Posted by scully931 6 (My Page) on

As you can see there are yellow spots all over the leaves of my honeysuckle. It is still growing quickly.

I have fed it a few times this summer (MG) and water it if we go too long without rain. There have been no flowers yet. I sprayed it with Daconil last week.

Any idea what this is and what I can do to help it? Thank you.

1. Is there something else on the plant that I can't see that required the fungicide ?

2. Hard to tell from the quality of the foto. Are there mites or other leaf-sucking insects on the undersides of the leaves?

Hi Dan,

Thanks for responding. (Every picture I took was blurry. Will try for a better one tomorrow.)

No insects that I can see. I sprayed the Daconil because I thought... well, now that you ask that I feel stupid. ;-/ I just thought it would help. The plant got the same thing last year and after I sprayed Daconil it started coming back. Last year it was much worse and the whole thing died off.

But- nope- no bugs. Just mottled yellow and green leaves.
