Help with lilac.. dark spots on leaves

holleymcMay 15, 2010

Hi all! I'm a long time lurker and have gotten lots of great info from you all! After battling Bacterial Blight on my lilacs, they now have dark spots on them. I dont know if its mildew or what. The lighter spots on the leaves I think is residue from the Southern AG Copper Fungicide I'm using to help control blight. Could I be mistaken and it powdery mildew? Any help would be most appreciated! My Lilacs are my favorite shrubs but also seem to be the ones that cause me the most grief! LOL! I'm not sure what kind these are.... I think it is the Old Fashioned.
