Black spot fungus on Eucalyptus Ceasia

Postby tetraptera » Wed Feb 15, 2017 3:49 pm

Hi,

I have what appears to be black spot fungus spreading fast on my 'Silver Princess' (see attached pictures).

Just wondering if anyone has had experience with this and confirm that this diagnosis is correct?

Additionally, what is the best method for treatment? I currently have some copper spray which I am about to try.

Thanks

Certainly looks like fungus. If so, the copper spray should help. Sometimes it is necessary to try a different fungicide not containing copper.
