can shasta daisies get fungus?
Last year we planted several shasta daisies. This year they are huge lush flowering plants. However, one [which for the most part is blooming beautifully] is having a problem only on one side. The leaves are yellowing and hanging limply from the stalks and the flowers on these stalks are dying. We are in an excessive heat/drought situation at present. Thinking at first this could be due to stress I made sure it was watered. This made no difference. Then I noticed that this was happening to only one plant and that the others all in the same location were having no problems. So wondered if the problem could be a fungus, so sprayed with a fungicide. I have pruned out as much of the dying stalks as I could.
I thought that shasta daisies were not given to such problems.
Any ideas anyone?
