Dogwood - is there any hope?
I planted several Cornus alba 'Elegantissima' after reading many positive things about them here. This is their second year in the ground. They are about 4'-5' tall now, but both years they have been covered with dark purplish red spots. It looks like anthracnose. The shrubs are now losing most of their leaves and they look terrible. Is there any cure for this disease? I keep finding treatment options, but I really don't want to have to deal with this every year. Any suggestions for a cure or a good substitute if there is none? Thanks!
