Out, Out, Damned Spot

Daconil (chlorothalonil) is loaded and ready for application 2 in a week or so.  The cold, the wet, the weird spring seems to have been a perfect brewing pot for leaf spot.  I have been cutting, and spraying to attack the problem.  As advised, I added a drop of dish detergent to promote adherence to the leaf. 

It first the wilted leaves seemed to have been a result of several hard frosts over the last two weeks.  Closer investigation revealed a bigger problem.

A few of my tall bearded iris including Vision in Pink are showing scape development.  Some of them already appear stunted.

Maybe 2013 will be impressive. At least the tulips were great this year.

Vision in Pink is developing a scape.
