Powdery Mildew-Resistant Woody Ornamentals Mary Ann Hansen, Extension Plant Pathologist, Department of Plant Pathology, Physiology and Weed Science, Virginia Tech
Powdery mildew is a common fungal disease of many ornamental plant species. Although plants are not often killed by the disease, they may become unsightly when heavy fungal growth develops on leaves and flowers. Controlling the disease on susceptible plants usually requires multiple sprays of an appropriate fungicide. Use of resistant cultivars in new plantings can significantly reduce plant maintenance related to powdery mildew control. Assembled below are lists of species, cultivars, and/or hybrids of some of the more popular woody landscape plants that are reported to have resis-
tance to powdery mildew (Tables 1-5). This information was compiled from several different landscape and field studies in which resistance to powdery mildew was evaluated.** Although the exact level of powdery mildew resistance exhibited by an individual cultivar may vary depending on where the plant is grown, all the plants listed should have moderate to excellent resistance and a reduced need for fungicide sprays. For more information on powdery mildew, refer to VCE Publication 450-603, Powdery Mildew of ornamental plants.
