Cornaceae

Cornus florida is susceptible to Dogwwod Anthracnose (Discula destructiva Red.) and has declined greatly in our area, even in cultivation. Symptoms include "necrotic lesions surrounded by reddish or brown-purple zone" and other leaf damage. See Daughtrey & Hibben (1994, Annu. Rev. Phytopathol. 32:61-73). Our other local species of Dogwood are not affected by this anthracnose.
