Boxwood Evergreens are susceptible to infection

Posted in Pruning, Uncategorized at 4:17 PM by Administrator

The UMass Extension Plant Diagnostic Lab has confirmed that boxwood blight is infecting plants in Massachusetts.  Dan Gillman, a UMass Extension Plant Pathologist, states that many species of boxwood are susceptible to infection.  The fungus will colonize on all above ground parts of a plant and cause defoliation and black lesions often develop on twigs and stems.

Please call us at 978.317.9875 if you would like Artistic Landscapes to perform a site visit and look to see if your boxwood plants have been infected.  New and mature boxwoods are susceptible to this fungus.
