Cedar Apple Rust

 

REGARDING CEDAR-APPLE RUST ON JUNIPERS

 All rusts are “alternate host” fungi.  The cedar-apple rust switches between “cedars” (actually junipers) and apple family plants.  Though the orange, jelly-like telial horns we see now on the junipers are dramatic, they are not harmful to the junipers.  

Instead, they are a serious problem on the crabapples, hawthorns and quince.  The rust creates leaf spots, then leaf drop, and even stem cankers on the Hawthorne.

 We concentrate our control measures only on those trees to which it’s harmful.  We spray through leaf development in the spring, usually three times.

 Our sprays also control apple scab, another leaf defoliator of the group.
