A new resource is available to landscapers, nursery growers and grounds managers who work with herbaceous perennials and need to identify diseases that impact these plants. Diseases of Herbaceous Perennials by Mark Gleason, Margery Daughtrey, Ann Chase, Gary Moorman, and Daren Mueller is published by The American Phytopathological Society. This full color publication contains easy-to-read information on general types of diseases that attack perennials. Specific sections on 150 popular perennials are arranged alphabetically by plant and accompanied by hundreds of fine color photographs to assist in accurate disease diagnosis.
I believe this book will become a standard on anyone’s bookshelf that is involved with identifying and diagnosing herbaceous perennial diseases. To obtain a copy go to: www.apsnet.org and scroll down to the APS Press tab on the left. You can also obtain a CD-rom that contains all the images from the book for use in presentations to your staff or clients. This is a "must have."
