Sick oxalis


By ange


Well I have now chopped off all the leaves with ‘rust’ on, which is ALL the leaves, still looks ok though, as plant has flowers still.Ah well I live in hope for next year. All other plants look fine, although begonias soon over.

My oxalis gets rust every year, but not usually till about July. I'm too lazy to spray it, so I ignore it and it grows again - I've had it for 12 years at least. I've got triangularis, is that what you've got?

Yes, mine does too. In fact I don't think I've seen one that doesn't!

Oh, ok then. Thanks both, yes it is triangularis. Do the normal green ones brown middles with have it too Lily? As mum-in-laws doesn't....?

Not sure Ange as I've never had those. Plain green ones seem to get it a bit but the dark leaf tringularis always gets it here.
