Didymellina leaf spot

Infected Iris planting

Leaf spot

Iris leaf lesions
 

 
PathogenDidymellina poecilospora
Hosts: Iris, most severe on rhizomatous Iris
Symptoms: The first symptoms are tiny brown spots with water-soaked borders. As disease progresses the water-soaked areas develop into irregular spots with grayish centers and dark borders. Foliage is killed, weakening the rhizomes. Disease severity worsens after bloom.
Spread: Rain and splashing water disseminates spores to adjacent plants. The disease can easily be introduced on infected plant material.
Management: Good sanitation is important. Leaf debris should be removed in the fall to reduce inoculum which overwinters on the dead foliage. If infected debris is left in the area in the spring the pathogen can sporulate and reinfect developing foliage.
