Indian Hawthorne is a shrub that can be found growing in many gardens across the world. It is a very hardy plant, and it grows very quickly, which makes it a popular choice for many gardeners. However, this is not to say that it has no problems at all. Several common diseases affect Indian Hawthorne plants. These diseases affect the growth of the plant and its ability to flower and fruit properly.
Here are some common diseases of an Indian hawthorn and how to cure them:
1. Powdery Mildew:
Powdery mildew spores settle on the leaves of your plant and grow into white powdery patches that look like dust or dandruff. To cure this disease, simply wash off the affected areas with a garden hose or by using a soft cloth dipped in water with a mild soap solution (1 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid per gallon).
Rust is caused by a fungus that attacks the leaves and stems of your plant. The rust will appear as orange or yellow spots on the leaves that eventually spread over the entire surface area. To cure rust, spray affected areas with a fungicide according to manufacturer instructions or mix equal parts of baking soda and water into a paste before applying it directly onto infected areas until completely covered.
3. Botryosphaeria blight (Botryosphaeria dothidea):
It is a fungal disease that causes brown spots to appear on leaves, stems, and buds. It’s most commonly seen during the winter months when temperatures drop below freezing for extended periods. Fungicides can help control this disease but may need to be applied several times per year for best results.
4. Leaf spot (Cercospora rhapsodes):
It causes yellow spots on leaves that turn brown as they age and can eventually kill off entire branches if not treated quickly.
