|ASTER YELLOWS||Leaves yellow. Abnormal branching occurs. Yellowed, leaf-like tissue forms instead of flower parts.||Phytoplasma||Destroy infected plants. Maintain good leafhopper control. Destroy any similarly affected weeds in the vicinity.|
|BOTRYTIS BLIGHT||Brown specks form on petals. The entire flower browns and dies.||Botrytis cinerea||Avoid sprinkler irrigation. Apply mancozeb, maneb, manganese + zinc, fludiononil, iprodione, copper sulfate, copper hydroxide, or chlorothalonil.|
|FUSARIUM WILT||Young seedlings are killed. Older plants are stunted and have yellowing and wilting up one side of the plant. Water conducting tissue in the stems browns.||Fusarium oxysporum||Use potting soil that has been treated to eliminate pathogens. Or, use soilless potting mix.|
|LEAF SPOTS||Spots form on leaves. Leaves Yellow, wilt, and die. Usually lower leaves are affected first and symptoms progress upward.||Alternaria, Ascochyta, Cercospora, Septoria||Avoid sprinkler irrigation. Apply mancozeb, iprodione, myclobutanil, fludioxonil, copper sulfate, copper hydroxide, thiophanate methyl + chlorthalonil, or chlorothalonil.|
|POWDERY MILDEW||White felty growth develops on the surface of leaves. Leaves wither and die.||Golovinomyces cichoracearum (formerly Erysiphe)||Apply fludioxonil mineral oil, aliphatic petroleum solvent, sulfur, kresoxim-methyl, myclobutanil, paraffin oil, mancozeb, triforine, triadimefon, thiophanate methyl + mancozeb, or sulfur.|
|RUST||Reddish-orange masses of spores form on the underside of leaves. Severely affected leaves yellow and die. On the alternate host, pines, blisters of spores form on needles in the spring.||Coleosporium solidaginis||No control is recommended.|
