Problem with blanketflowers

Posted by potternut NJ (My Page) on

Hi all,

I bought 3 of these blanketflower (Gaillardia) plants from a local nursery about one month ago. Over the past few weeks, I have noticed these horrible white patches on all 3 of them. I'm wondering what's going on and if there's any hope of fixing this. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!

It is called white smut usually associated with root and crown rot. Just google white smut on gallardia to see picture and read advice.
