Daylily  Rust
In 2001, a Daylily disease caused by the fungal organism, Puccinia hemerocallidis, became of concern following its rapid spread throughout the United States. Spores of the disease were easily spread from an infected Daylily plant to others nearby. The same disease also occurs on Patrinia spp.

Daylily Rust may cause the entire foliage of Daylily plants to become an unsightly yellow, though it does not normally kill them. The healthy Daylily plant shown here does not have rust or any other foliage disease.

  • Accidental infection of Daylily plants growing at the farm is unlikely due to the farm's isolated location.
