The Hanahaki disease is a disease born of unrequited love, or love that feels as if it’s not possible for the victim. The victim will cough up flowers that take root deep in their lungs. The only cure is to have your love requited and returned, for only then will the flowers seize to torment the victim.

|Hanahaki Disease, or Hanahaki Byou||Hanahaki Otome (花吐き乙女) by Matsuda Naoko. Popularized by Japanese, Korean, and Chinese pop band, anime, and manga fandoms.||Hanahaki Disease (花吐き病 (Japanese); 하나하키병 (Korean); 花吐病 (Chinese)) is a fictional disease where the victim of unrequited or one-sided love begins to vomit or cough up the petals and flowers of a flowering plant growing in their lungs, which will eventually grow large enough to render breathing impossible if left untreated. There is no set time for how long this disease lasts but it may last from 2 weeks to 3 months, in rare cases up to 18 months, until the victim dies unless the feelings are returned or the plants are surgically removed. There is also no set flower that blossoms in the lungs but it may be the enamoured’s favourite flower or favourite colour. Hanahaki can be cured through surgical removal of the plants’ roots, but this excision also has the effect of removing the patient’s capacity for romantic love. It may also erase the patient’s feelings for and memories of the enamoured. It can also be cured by the reciprocation of the victim’s feelings. These feelings cannot be feelings of friendship but must be feelings of genuine love. The victim may also develop Hanahaki Disease if they believe the love to be one-sided but once the enamoured returns the feelings, they will be cured. In some literature other symptoms can be fever, uncontrollable shaking, loss of appetite, low body temperature, and hallucinations. Even after curing, with or without surgery, there can be irreversible damage to the lungs and, although very rare, in some cases the disease cannot be cured.|

What causes flower disease?
Signs and symptoms of plant disease: Is it fungal, viral or bacterial? Familiarity with the way plant diseases are visually identified can help you diagnose problems. Most plant diseases – around 85 percent – are caused by fungal or fungal-like organisms.
However, other serious diseases of food and feed crops are caused by viral and bacterial organisms. Certain nematodes also cause plant disease. Some plant diseases are classified as “abiotic,” or diseases that are non-infectious and include damage from air pollution, nutritional deficiencies or toxicities, and grow under less than optimal conditions.
For now, we’ll look at diseases caused by the three main pathogenic microbes: fungus, bacteria and virus. If plant disease is suspected, careful attention to plant appearance can give a good clue regarding the type of pathogen involved. A sign of plant disease is physical evidence of the pathogen.
- For example, fungal fruiting bodies are a sign of disease.
- When you look at powdery mildew on a lilac leaf, you’re actually looking at the parasitic fungal disease organism itself ( Microsphaera alni ).
- Bacterial canker of stone fruits causes gummosis, a bacterial exudate emerging from the cankers.
- The thick, liquid exudate is primarily composed of bacteria and is a sign of the disease, although the canker itself is composed of plant tissue and is a symptom.
A symptom of plant disease is a visible effect of disease on the plant. Symptoms may include a detectable change in color, shape or function of the plant as it responds to the pathogen. Leaf wilting is a typical symptom of verticilium wilt, caused by the fungal plant pathogens Verticillium albo-atrum and V.
Leaf rust (common leaf rust in corn) Stem rust (wheat stem rust) Sclerotinia (white mold) Powdery mildew
Fungal disease symptoms:
Birds-eye spot on berries (anthracnose) Damping off of seedlings (phytophthora) Leaf spot (septoria brown spot) Chlorosis (yellowing of leaves)

Hanahaki Disease ( 花吐き病 (Japanese); 하나하키병 (Korean); 花吐病 (Chinese)) is a fictional disease in which the victim coughs up flower petals when they suffer from one-sided love, It ends when the beloved returns their feelings (romantic love only; strong friendship is not enough), or when the victim dies.
It can be cured through surgical removal, but when the infection is removed, the victim’s romantic feelings for their love also disappear. The trope was popularized in East Asian fandoms (Korean, Japanese, Chinese) before it was used by Westerners. In fandom, it appears most frequently in relation to BL pairings,
The Hanahaki Disease trope is not used exclusively within fandom – many people have become intrigued by the concept and created non- fannish artwork, poetry, songs, music videos, documentaries and other creative works based around the concept. However, Hanahaki Disease is particularly popular within fandom due to its potential for angst, hurt/comfort, pining, and general romantic tension.
Can flowers in the house make you cough?
Here are 10 things in your home and office that you need to beware of. – When you have severe cough, there is little you can do beyond taking your medicine, and drinking some warm liquids to soothe your throat. Once your infection subsides, the cough will go away on its own. But there is another aspect to consider if there is something in your environment making your cough worse, getting rid of it may be very much within your control.
- Here’s a list of 10 things in your home and office that may be aggravating your cough.
- Cold or dry air When you have a cold, your nose and throat are already irritated.
- Air that is cold and dry causes a loss of water vapor from the respiratory passage; this worsens the irritation and can cause the airways to go into a spasm and the spasm sets off a bout of coughing.
At night, when the air grows colder, the cough often worsens. Curtains and drapes Curtains and drapes are a common sight in most homes because they enhance the d cor. However, these fabrics also serve as magnets for dust which may be a mixture of fiber, dust mites, mold spores, parts from cockroaches and even animal dander if you have pets at home.
- According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, dust can set off an allergic reaction.
- So, anytime you move the curtains or drapes or vacuum them, this dust gets dislodged from the fabric into the surrounding air and breathing in this air can aggravate your cough.
- Upholstered furniture Like curtains, upholstered furniture also tends to attract a lot of dust.
Such furniture is difficult to clean and most people only carry out a perfunctory occasional cleaning. Anytime someone uses such furniture, or if you have young kids jumping on it, the dust gets released into the surrounding air and this can worsen your cough.
Read more about how you can prevent a sore throat from progressing, Carpets and foot rugs Carpets we use on the floor accumulate a lot of dust and also human skin flakes and animal dander. Foot rugs you use at the door of the bathroom tend to get moist when you wipe your wet feet on them and this dampness promotes the growth of mold.
Whenever you rub your feet against the carpet or the foot rug, it causes the release of dust or mold spores into the air and this can aggravate an existing cough. Sleeping gear If you find that lying in bed causes your cough to aggravate, it is due to the effect of gravity that causes secretions to drip into your throat and irritate the membranes there.
But there may be another contributing factor the mattress, bedspreads, pillows and sheets on your bed all accumulate dust with time. Blankets may also shed tiny fibers that attract more dust mites and these can make the irritation in your throat worse. Stuffed toys Those who have young kids are sure to have some toys of the stuffed variety or soft toys lying around the house.
These toys tend to collect dust and when your kid plays with them, the dust gets into the airways, aggravating the cough. Smoke When you inhale any type of smoke, it causes a severe irritation of the mucous membranes lining your airways. Your cough can therefore aggravate if someone at your home or office smokes, or if there is a neighbour burning garden waste and the smoke enters your home, or if your home or office is along a busy road where vehicles spew exhaust throughout the day.
- Read more about how air pollution is more deadly than you think.
- Pets If you have pets at home cats, rodents, dogs or birds it may be the pet dander that is responsible for your persistent cough.
- Pet dander is a mixture of the skin that flakes off the animal mixed with its saliva.
- This dander is highly allergenic and can set off your immune system.
If your pet rolls in the grass outside and then comes home, it may have also picked up the pollen floating around in air and the pollen is equally allergenic. Cosmetics According to MedicineNet.com, perfumes can aggravate symptoms of asthma. Cosmetics such as deodorants, hairspray and perfumes that have a strong odour can irritate your airways.
- If someone at home or in your office is using such cosmetics, you may find your cough aggravate when around this person.
- Read more about the herbal alternatives to cosmetics.
- Indoor potted plants Soil is a rich source of mold and the damper the soil, better the mold grows.
- When you have a potted plant in your home or office, the spores given out by the mold can enter your respiratory passage and lead to an irritation.
This leads to the typical coughing and sneezing that indicates an allergic response. Of the 10 things listed here, there are sure to be at least two or three that apply to your home and office environment. When you tackle these issues, it is possible that your cough will settle down a little sooner.

The fic does also work to try Doing In the Wizard by giving a scientific explanation for how the disease occurs and gives a grim prognosis. The starting point of the disease is a strange imbalance in the brain, and suppressing emotions increases the likelihood that someone catches it. It also explains that the disease is far more dangerous, as flowers within the body will cause problems in breathing, digestion, and liver and kidney function. Additionally, there are ways to reduce the symptoms, namely by introducing microbes and larva that eat the flowers to keep the symptoms at bay.
Played for Laughs in the My Hero Academia fanfic Hanafunki, which must be seen to be believed.

Hanahaki’s disease—so named for the first recorded mage to die of it. It is a magical wasting sickness, one that springs from a deep, particular incongruence between what one wants and what is possible. of all the fiercest passions, it is only love, love unrequited, that provides soil fertile enough for the disease to grow. Oh, there are charms and there are ways to trick the mind, but no mage can force the love, the real love, of another into being. Some gifts can only be given freely. So, when love goes unanswered, when a mage’s terrible, practiced will finds itself confronted with the impossible, there is an opportunity for a sort of inflammation, an infection, of one’s inherent arcanic reserves. It is not unlike a spell held indefinitely in that instant before casting, chafing at the bonds of reality until something sick and septic leaks out.

Types of sporotrichosis –
- Cutaneous (skin) sporotrichosis is the most common form of the infection. It usually occurs on a person’s hand or the arm after touching contaminated plant matter.
- Pulmonary (lung) sporotrichosis is rare but can happen after someone breathes in fungal spores from the environment.
- Disseminated sporotrichosis occurs when the infection spreads to another part of the body, such as bones, joints, or central nervous system. This form of sporotrichosis usually affects people with health problems or who take medicines that lower the body’s ability to fight germs and sickness, such as people living with HIV ().
Medical illustration of Sporothrix schenckii, Sporotrichosis has been caused by scratches or bites from animals, particularly cats. about Sporothrix brasiliensis, a fungus that cats are spreading in Brazil and other areas of South America. The symptoms of sporotrichosis depend on where the fungus is growing in the body.
- Contact your healthcare provider if you have symptoms that you think are related to sporotrichosis.
- Sporotrichosis usually affects the skin or tissues underneath the skin.
- The first symptom of cutaneous (skin) sporotrichosis is usually a small, painless bump that can develop any time from 1 to 12 weeks after exposure to the fungus.
The bump can be red, pink, or purple, and usually appears on the finger, hand, or arm where the fungus has entered through a break in the skin. The bump will eventually grow larger and may look like an open sore or ulcer that is very slow to heal. Additional bumps or sores may appear later near the original one.
Why flowers should not be plucked at night?
Trees too go to sleep at night, proves study London, May 18 Don’t pluck that flower at night for the plant might be sleeping after a long day in the sun, suggests new research that measured the changes in the shape of plants during the day and night cycle.
Most living organisms adapt their behaviour to the rhythm of day and night. Plants are no exception: Flowers open in the morning, some tree leaves close during the night. And while researchers have been studying the day and night cycle in plants for a long time, nobody knew whether trees too go to sleep.
To find out, the team of researchers from Austria, Finland and Hungary measured the movement of fully grown trees using laser scanners. “Our results show that the whole tree droops during night, which can be seen as position change in leaves and branches,” said Eetu Puttonen from Finnish Geospatial Research Institute.
The changes are not too large, only up to 10 cm for trees with a height of about 5 metres, but they were systematic and well within the accuracy of our instruments,” Puttonen said. To rule out effects of weather and location, the experiment was done twice with two different trees. The first tree was surveyed in Finland and the other in Austria.
Both tests were done close to solar equinox, under calm conditions with no wind or condensation. The leaves and branches were shown to droop gradually, with the lowest position reached a couple of hours before sunrise. In the morning, the trees returned to their original position within a few hours.
- However, it is not yet clear whether they were “woken up” by the sun or by their own internal rhythm.
- The findings appeared in the journal Frontiers in Plant Science.
- The researchers noted that laser scanners use infrared light, which is reflected by the leaves.
- With this scanning technique, a full-sized tree can be automatically mapped within minutes with sub-centimeter resolution.

What is the flower that makes your mouth numb?
What are buzz buttons and what are the known risks associated with exposure to them? Buzz buttons were seen on the menu for a special event at which food was served. An environmental health officer inquired about the following:
- What are buzz buttons and how are they consumed and used?
- What are the known risks associated with exposure to buzz buttons?
- What are the current regulations regarding the use of buzz buttons?
The term buzz button refers to the flower of the Acmella oleracea ( A. oleracea ) plant, an herb that grows throughout the tropics and in many temperate zones and is used in cooking and traditional medicine and as an ornamental plant.A. oleracea has many common names.
Some names such as buzz buttons and Sichuan buttons are descriptive terms for the effervescent and numbing sensations produced when the plant’s flower enters the mouth. Other common names relate to the appearance of the flower (e.g., eyeball plant, spot plant) or to the plant’s use in traditional medicine (e.g., the toothache plant), while others relate to its uses in food (e.g., salad cress, paracress) and others are traditional names used in countries where the plant is native (e.g., agriao do para, jampu, jambu oleoresin).
Various parts of A. oleracea are used to flavour foods and within traditional medicine. The plant grows to a height of 60-90 cm and has flat, tear-shaped leaves that range in length from 2 to 6 cm. The flowers (i.e., buzz buttons) are round and yellow with a dark red spot at the top.
- The flowers and leaves of A.
- Oleracea are known for their strong, pungent and often astringent taste.
- The main active compound, known as spilanthol or affinin (molecular formula, C 14 H 23 NO) 6, is most highly concentrated in the flowers, leaves and roots and is responsible for the distinctive taste and therapeutic properties attributed to the plant.
The more well known properties include analgesic, local anesthetic, anti-inflammatory, diuretic, and gastroprotective. Extracts of spilanthol and N-alkylamides from the plant have also been shown to be effective in controlling certain species of mosquitoes and moths.
- Expert consultation with specialists in food safety and toxicology from a local health agency,
- A rapid search and review of the scientific literature, and
- A review of regulations and guidelines pertaining to A. oleracea, spilanthol and affinin.
Information from the food safety and toxicology specialists provided preliminary guidance toward setting the scientific background. This consultation also provided background on the extent to which different groups within the environmental public health sector (e.g., environmental health officers, poison control centres) have dealt with buzz buttons and related products.
The rapid literature search of peer-reviewed and grey literature was conducted by the NCCEH’s information specialist through UBC’s EbscoHost (which provided access to Medline, CINAHL, and Biomedical Reference Collection), Ovid (Embase), Web of Science, Google Scholar, and Google. A separate search of government documents and professional organizations was conducted to determine official regulations, authorizations and classifications in force for the use of A.
oleracea and spilanthol in foods, flavourings and therapeutic agents. Sources consulted included Health Canada, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Health Organization (WHO), the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the US National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the US Toxicology Data Network (TOXNET) and the Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association of the United States (FEMA).
What does it mean when you throw up flowers at a wedding?
Amanda McQuade Photography If you have ever attended a wedding you probably remember watching, or participating in the bouquet toss. The bouquet toss has become a modern tradition where all the single ladies at the wedding line up on the dance floor to catch the bride’s bouquet.
But why do we do this? The Modern Bouquet Toss: The bouquet toss in modern times is a symbol of good luck. It is said if you catch the bouquet, then you will have good fortune and you will be the next to get married. The bouquet toss usually happens after the cake cutting. The DJ or band will call on all the single ladies in the room to make their way to the dance floor.
The bride will get ready to throw her bouquet to the crowd of women. Once caught, she will usually take a photo with the bride, groom and whomever caught the garter. Ordering a Toss Bouquet: You might want to order a toss bouquet from your florist. Bridal bouquets seem to have gotten more elaborate and larger.
- Most are not tight and neat anymore, but rather have a gorgeous wild look with lots of greenery and loose pieces.
- It will be easier (and safer 😉 ) to purchase a smaller toss bouquet to throw at the crowd.
- You might also want to keep your bouquet as a keepsake.
- It has become popular to get flowers from your bouquet pressed in a book or shadow box.
Read our upcoming blog post, “How to Press your Bridal Bouquet as a Keepsake” for ideas on how to properly preserve your bouquet. History of the Bouquet Toss: The tossing of the bouquet dates back hundreds of years ago, in England. Taking something from the bride was considered good luck.
So guests would rip and pull things from her gown. In order for the bride to make her exit with minimal attacks she would throw her bouquet to distract wedding goers as she made her exit. Cheyenne Kidd Photography Break the Tradition with these Unique Bouquet Toss Ideas: Maybe you don’t want to throw your bridal bouquet at your guests.
I am all about coming up with alternative ideas to the traditional bouquet toss. I have listed out some fun options below.
The Marriage Dance:
Have your DJ or band invite all the married couples onto the dance floor. He/she will call a number symbolizing a year of marriage. If you have been married less than the number of years called out, then you exit the dance floor. Eventually you will find the couple that has been married the longest. You can give the bouquet to them and also get some amazing photos together. At one of our weddings, the couple married the longest number of years was asked to share their best advice for a long and happy marriage. It was so special to hear their loving advice and see the devotion they had for one another.
Good Luck in Each Bouquet:
Have your florist create a large bouquet made up of a bunch of mini bouquets. Wrap each bouquet with a lucky fortune. Invite all of your guests out on the dance floor for a chance to catch a small bouquet full of good luck and well wishes. This is a great way to tie in the idea of luck, but not singling out all your single “girlfriends” in front of a crowd.
Have a dancing contest to a certain song. Winner gets to keep the bouquet.
Gift for a Loved One:
Maybe you don’t want to throw anything, or make a big deal about a bouquet toss. It would be really nice to give your bouquet away to someone who means a lot to you, or even your parents. They may have done a lot during the planning process. Giving them the bouquet is a wonderful way to say thank you!
Does it have to be flowers?:
Who says you have to throw flowers, or give away your gorgeous bouquet that you want to keep? You can always throw, or give something else away. Maybe you have a dance competition, but instead of giving your bridal bouquet as the prize, you give them a bouquet of candy bars, or scratch off tickets. You can get really creative with your giveaway idea and keep it in line with your wedding theme.
Always remember this is your wedding day! You get to decide how the celebration will go. Don’t feel pressured or obligated to have a bouquet toss, or some type of giveaway. It is perfectly fine to not have any type of bouquet toss event at the wedding.
What are the stages of Hanahaki disease?
Hanahaki was a terminal disease, if not removed in time. There were 3 stages to Hanahaki: first, the victim would only cough up petals, the second stage would be full buds and some fully bloomed flowers, at the third stage the roots would seal the air passages, thus suffocating the victim.
What kind of disease does Rose have?
PP077 (11/03R) By Dr. Sharon M. Douglas Department of Plant Pathology and Ecology The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station 123 Huntington Street P.O. Box 1106 New Haven, CT 06504-1106 Telephone: (203) 974-8601 Fax: (203) 974-8502 Email: [email protected] The rose is often called the “Queen of the Flowers” and is the most popular garden plant in the world.
Unfortunately, many roses are also susceptible to a number of diseases that lessen their value in the landscape. In Connecticut, the common diseases of rose include black spot, powdery mildew, downy mildew, Botrytis blight, cankers (brand and common canker), rust, crown gall, mosaic, and winter injury.
Each year the severity and distribution of these problems vary with the weather, the site, and the type of rose. Many rose diseases can be effectively avoided or minimized through the combined use of culture, sanitation, resistance, biologicals, and pesticide sprays.
- For example, there is renewed interest in the old garden roses because of their resistance to many diseases and their winter-hardiness.
- By following an integrated approach, reliance upon one type of control over others is reduced and usually results in effective management of disease.
- BLACK SPOT Black spot, caused by the fungus Diplocarpon rosae, is one of the most common and persistent diseases of rose in Connecticut.
Symptoms on the leaves are recognized as circular, black spots with fringed margins. These spots are often surrounded by yellow halos. Infections can result in extensive yellowing of leaflets or entire leaves. Yellowed leaves drop prematurely, especially on susceptible cultivars.
- Plants that defoliate by midseason are weakened, have reduced flower bud set, poor flower quality, and are susceptible to environmental stresses, particularly winter injury.
- Symptoms can also develop on canes.
- They appear as purple-red blotches that blacken with age and develop a blistered appearance.
Cankers serve as a means for survival of the fungus over the winter and are important sources of inoculum for new infections in spring. The fungus also overwinters in dead, fallen leaves and plant debris. Black spot is usually most severe in wet weather.
One approach to manage black spot is to plant resistant varieties. However, since there are many strains of the fungus, resistance can be variable. Therefore, it is important to plant varieties known to be resistant to the strains of the fungus that are present in a particular area. Some cultivars with resistance to black spot are David Thompson, Coronado, Simplicity, Las Vegas, and Cary Grant.
Black spot may also be reduced by following a good sanitation program that includes removing infected leaves as soon as they appear during the growing season and raking and removing all fallen leaves and plant debris in the fall. Diseased canes should also be pruned back to healthy wood in spring prior to budbreak.
It is helpful to have sufficient space between plants to ensure good air circulation. Avoiding overhead irrigation or watering early in the day are also effective in minimizing conditions favorable for disease development. Plant vigor should also be maintained by following a program of sound cultural care.
Fungicide sprays can supplement other options for black spot control. Among the compounds registered in Connecticut are captan, thiophanate methyl, chlorothalonil, fixed copper, triforine, sulfur, potassium bicarbonate, and mancozeb. Consult the label for dosage rates and safety precautions.
- Applications can be made when new growth appears in the spring and continued as long as conditions are favorable for disease development.
- POWDERY MILDEW Powdery mildew, caused by Sphaerotheca pannosa var.
- Rosae, is a common disease of rose worldwide and is particularly troublesome for glasshouse roses.
This disease is recognized by the white, powdery growth on leaves, shoots, and buds. Early symptoms of disease appear as chlorotic or reddish areas or patches on leaves that eventually develop the characteristic white, powdery appearance. This diagnostic, powdery, white growth is usually found on the upper surfaces of leaves, but it can occur on both upper and lower leaf surfaces.
- When newly emerging shoots are infected when young, shoots can be distorted and twisted.
- Young leaves may curl upward and may be deformed.
- Flower buds infected with powdery mildew often fail to open.
- Powdery mildew can develop under relatively dry conditions in spring or midsummer as long as the air is humid and warm.
Unlike other fungi that require free water in order to infect, the powdery mildew fungus does not require moisture on the tissues for infection. This fungus also produces small, black, pepper-like resting structures called cleistothecia. These structures serve as overwintering structures and also allow the fungus to survive in the absence of a suitable plant host.
- Cleistothecia are found in plant debris and are often the primary sources of inoculum in the spring.
- The powdery mildew fungus can also survive the winter as hyphae or fungal strands in infected buds.
- One approach to managing powdery mildew is to plant resistant varieties.
- However, since resistance can be variable because there are many strains of the powdery mildew fungus, it is important to plant varieties known to be resistant in this area.
Some cultivars with resistance to powdery mildew include Tropicana, Double Delight, Sonia, and Queen Elizabeth. Powdery mildew may also be reduced by following a good sanitation program that includes removing symptomatic leaves as soon as they appear.
Leaves should be removed and immediately placed in a plastic bag to avoid spread of the powdery spores to other plants. It is also effective to remove all fallen leaves and plant debris in the fall. Diseased canes should be pruned back to healthy wood in the spring, prior to budbreak. It is also helpful to have sufficient space between plants to ensure good air circulation and reduce humidity levels.
Plant vigor should be maintained by following a program of sound cultural care. Fungicide sprays can supplement other options for powdery mildew control. Among the compounds registered in Connecticut are thiophanate methyl, chlorothalonil, triforine, triadimefon, sulfur, potassium bicarbonate, horticultural oil, and mancozeb.
- Consult the label for dosage rates and safety precautions.
- Applications can be made when symptoms first appear and continued as long as conditions are favorable for disease development.
- DOWNY MILDEW Downy mildew, caused by the fungus-like organism Peronospora sparsa, is a highly destructive disease of rose.
Fortunately, it is somewhat sporadic in occurrence in Connecticut. Disease development is favored by cool, wet conditions and it can occur in landscape and glasshouse roses. Symptoms can develop on all aboveground parts of the plant including leaves, stems, peduncles, calyxes, and petals.
- However, leaf infections are the most common and are relatively easy to recognize.
- Infected leaves develop purple to red, angular spots or blotches that are readily visible on the upper surface.
- These symptoms are often accompanied by yellowing, necrosis, and premature leaf drop.
- In some cases, these symptoms can be confused with those associated with contact injury or phytotoxicity due to misapplied pesticides.
Defoliation can be extensive when infections are heavy. Under conditions of high humidity, a purplish-gray mass of spores of the pathogen develops on the undersurfaces of infected leaves. Downy mildew can be distinguished from powdery mildew on the basis of where the sporulation occurs: the downy mildew pathogen only sporulates on the abaxial (lower) surface of the leaf; the powdery mildew fungus usually sporulates on the adaxial (upper) surface of the leaf first, but can be found sporulating on both leaf surfaces.
Small, purplish-black lesions can also develop on canes and peduncles. These are often confused with those associated with black spot. The pathogen overwinters as mycelium in infected canes and as resting spores (oospores) in plant debris and stems. Downy mildew can be managed by following a program of good sanitation that includes removing infected leaves as soon as they appear and removing all fallen leaves and plant debris in the fall.
Diseased canes should be pruned back to healthy wood in spring prior to budbreak. It is also helpful to have sufficient space between plants to ensure good air circulation and reduce humidity levels. Steps to avoid overhead irrigation and watering early in the day help to minimize conditions favorable for disease development.
- Plant vigor should also be maintained by following a program of sound cultural care.
- Fungicide sprays can supplement other options for downy mildew control.
- Among the compounds registered in Connecticut are copper hydroxide and mancozeb.
- Consult the label for dosage rates and safety precautions.
- Applications can be made when new growth first appears and are continued as long as conditions are favorable for disease development.
BOTRYTIS BLIGHT Botrytis blight, caused by the fungus Botrytis cinerea, is a very common disease of rose. This fungus is cosmopolitan and has an extremely broad host range. Symptoms develop on all aboveground parts including flowers, buds, canes, and growing tips.
- Disease development is favored by periods of cool, cloudy, humid weather.
- The most diagnostic symptom of Botrytis blight is the presence of grayish-brown, fuzzy growth on the surfaces of infected plant parts.
- Small, tan flecks or patches appear on flower petals and flower buds.
- Infected flower buds may droop and fail to open.
Botrytis can also infect the stub ends of pruning cuts and any wounds from cutting. These types of infections can result in blighting of canes as the fungus produces sunken, tan-brown cankers that girdle the canes. Botrytis can effectively survive on all types of plant debris.
- Sanitation is critical for management of Botrytis blight and includes removing spent flowers and infected leaves as soon as they appear and removing all fallen leaves and plant debris in the autumn.
- Diseased canes should also be pruned back to healthy wood in spring prior to budbreak.
- It is also helpful to have sufficient space between plants to ensure good air circulation and reduce humidity levels.
Steps to avoid overhead irrigation and watering early in the day help to minimize conditions favorable for disease development. Plant vigor should also be maintained by following a program of sound cultural care. Fungicide sprays can supplement other options for control of Botrytis blight.
- Among the compounds registered in Connecticut are captan, chlorothalonil, copper sulphate pentahydrate, iprodione, mancozeb, potassium bicarbonate, and thiophanate methyl.
- Consult the label for dosage rates and safety precautions.
- Applications can be made when symptoms first appear and are continued as long as conditions are favorable for disease development.
CANKER (BRAND AND COMMON CANKER) Roses are susceptible to several types of fungal stem cankers. The two most common causal agents are Coniothyrium wernsdorffiae and C. fuckelii, which cause brand canker and common canker, respectively. Both fungi infect through wounds from pruning, insects, and other types of mechanical injuries.
- Symptoms are confined to the canes or stems and vary in size and other characteristics, depending on the causal agent.
- Cankers often begin as small, yellow or dark-reddish spots.
- The affected areas gradually enlarge and become distinctly brown or reddish- brown in the centers.
- With brand canker, the canker margin appears reddish-brown or purple, whereas common canker has a dark-brown margin.
Cankered areas are often readily visible from the healthy green of the unaffected portion of the cane. When cankers girdle or encircle a cane or stem, they result in wilting and death of everything beyond the canker. Small, black flecks can develop in the centers of the cankers and are fruiting structures of the causal fungi.
Canker diseases can be managed by following a program of good sanitation. Diseased canes should be pruned back to sound, healthy wood in the spring prior to budbreak. Proper pruning cuts using sharp, clean equipment are important to maximize healing. Equipment can be disinfested with a 10% solution of household bleach (1 part bleach: 9 parts water), 70% alcohol, or one of the commercially available compounds such as Greenshield ®,
Plant vigor should also be maintained by following a program of sound cultural care. It is helpful to avoid injuries and to provide adequate winter protection. Fungicides are not effective for control of canker diseases. RUST Rose rust is a fungal disease caused by several species of Phragmidium.
Symptoms can develop on leaves and any other green parts of the plant. Under favorable conditions, rust symptoms can appear on the entire plant. Small, orange pustules develop on both leaf surfaces in early spring. These gradually enlarge and become more pronounced on the abaxial (lower) surface of the leaf.
Chlorotic or mottled areas can also develop on the adaxial (upper) surface of the leaf. These areas usually develop directly over the pustules on the lower surface. Young stems and sepals can also become infected. By late summer or early fall, the pustules turn black and contain the spores for winter survival.
Heavy infections can result in premature defoliation. However, cultivars vary greatly in susceptibility and in their reactions to infection. Disease occurs after spores are transmitted through the air, land on leaves, and infect the leaves through stomates. Relatively cool temperatures, high moisture, and high levels of relative humidity are conducive for rust development.
Rust fungi overwinter on dead leaves, plant debris, and infected canes. Rust diseases can be managed by following a good sanitation program that includes removing infected leaves as soon as they appear and removing all fallen leaves and plant debris in the fall.
Rusted” canes should also be pruned back to healthy wood in spring prior to budbreak. It is also helpful to have sufficient space between plants to ensure good air circulation and to avoid overhead irrigation or water early in the day to minimize conditions favorable for disease development. Plant vigor should also be maintained by following a program of sound cultural care.
When available, it is helpful to plant rust-resistant cultivars or species. Fungicide sprays can supplement other options for rust control and a number of compounds are registered in Connecticut. Lime sulfur is registered as a dormant spray. The fungicides mancozeb, chlorothalonil, myclobutanil, and triforine are effective for control of rust during the growing season.
Consult the label for dosage rates and safety precautions. Applications can be made when new growth first appears and are continued as long as conditions are favorable for disease development. CROWN GALL Crown gall is caused by the bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens, This disease is commonly recognized by the presence of galls or swellings on the main stem at or slightly below the soil line.
Galls can also form on roots and, more infrequently, on aerial portions of the plant. Crown galls are often irregular in shape, have no internal structure or organization, and vary in size. Young galls are light green or off-white and soft. As these galls age, they darken to brown or black and become hard and woody.
- Roses infected with crown gall react in many different ways.
- Some plants appear stunted, others have poor foliage and produce few flowers or flowers of poor quality, and others are killed.
- The locations of the galls appear to have a significant impact on the symptoms exhibited by the infected plant.
- For example, a single gall at the base of a stem may be more damaging than several galls located on roots or aerial canes.
The bacterium infects through wounds (e.g., from pruning, cultivating, insect chewing, or heaving in frozen soil). It can also be transmitted by wounds made with infested tools. Crown gall bacteria survive in galls and in the soil without a plant host for at least two years.
- Prevention and sanitation are critical for managing crown gall.
- It is important to use healthy, disease-free transplants and to carefully inspect plants prior to planting.
- It is helpful to avoid injuries to the roots and crown during planting and cultivating.
- Canes with galls can be pruned back to sound, healthy wood.
Proper pruning cuts using sharp, clean equipment are important to maximize healing. Equipment can be disinfested with a 10% solution of household bleach (1 part bleach: 9 parts water), 70% alcohol, or one of the commercially available compounds such as Greenshield ®,
- Rootstocks differ in their susceptibility to crown gall.
- Among the more resistant types are Rosa multiflora and R. manetti,
- Plant vigor should also be maintained by following a program of sound cultural care.
- Control of crown gall with biological control agents has yielded mixed results.
- The bacterium Agrobacterium radiobacter strain K84 is registered for biocontrol and has occasionally been successful as a preplant dip or spray.
There are no effective chemical controls for this disease. MOSAIC Rose mosaic is caused by a complex of several viruses including Prunus Necrotic Ringspot Virus (PNRSV) and Apple Mosaic Virus (AMV). Symptoms are highly variable and depend on time of year, temperature, species, cultivar, and the specific viruses infecting the plant.
- Characteristic leaf symptoms appear as wavy or zigzag, chlorotic lines but symptoms may also appear as ring spots and mottled patterns.
- Yellow watermarks, vein clearing, or dull yellow blotches may also be indicative of infection.
- Some infected plants may appear stunted and weak and others may show no symptoms at all.
Reductions in flower numbers and size, distortion, and reduced winter-hardiness have also been reported to be associated with infection. Symptoms are often most pronounced in spring and early summer and may not be present in summer, possibly due to temperature.
- Rose mosaic is not readily transmitted in nature since no insect vectors have been identified.
- However, it is spread when infected buds, scions, or rootstocks are grafted onto healthy plants.
- Once plants are infected with rose mosaic, they cannot be cured.
- Rose mosaic can be avoided by purchasing healthy, certified virus-free planting material.
It is also prudent to scout for symptoms on a regular basis and to remove and destroy infected plants as soon as they are identified. WINTER INJURY Winter injury results from many environmental factors that have little in common other than that they occur during the winter.
Examples include late spring frosts, cool summers followed by warm autumns and sudden drops in temperature, dramatic temperature fluctuations, freeze-thaw cycles, lack of snow cover, unusually warm midwinter temperatures, extended periods of extreme or abnormally cold temperatures, and drying winds.
Winter injury is important in and of itself, but it also predisposes and weakens plants and subsequently makes them more vulnerable to secondary or opportunistic pests. Another important characteristic of winter injury is that, quite often, the symptoms are not evident until some time after the injury has occurred.
- Symptoms of winter injury are highly variable and are manifest as buds that fail to open in spring or shoots that wilt and collapse shortly after emergence or suddenly collapse during the heat of the summer.
- In some cases, canes are blackened and dead by spring.
- Winter injury can be minimized by maintaining plant vigor by following a program of sound cultural care.
For example, one of the most effective defenses against winter injury is to stop fertilizing early enough in the season so the plants have a chance to go into natural dormancy. In spring, any dead canes that can serve as sites for secondary invaders or opportunistic pests should be pruned and removed from the planting.
Winter protection in the form of winter mulching is also helpful for bud-grafted plants such as hybrid teas. It is usually not necessary for species, shrub, old garden, or climbing roses. Roses can be mulched with loose soil, compost, or leaves mounded around the base after the first hard frost. The goal is to protect the bud union from the weather extremes of the winter.
Winter mulch should be removed in early spring when new growth begins. It is also important to select cultivars or species of rose that are known to be hardy in Connecticut. The rose is often called the “Queen of the Flowers” and is the most popular garden plant in the world.
Unfortunately, many roses are also susceptible to a number of diseases that lessen their value in the landscape. In Connecticut, the common diseases of rose include black spot, powdery mildew, downy mildew, Botrytis blight, cankers (brand and common canker), rust, crown gall, mosaic, and winter injury.
Each year, the severity and distribution of these problems vary with the weather, the site, and the type of rose. Many rose diseases can be effectively avoided or minimized through the combined use of culture, sanitation, resistance, biologicals, and pesticide sprays.
