DOI:   10.17660/ActaHortic.2009.813.74
Abstract:
Three cultivars of Flannel flower (Actinotus helianthi) were inoculated with isolates of Rhizoctonia sp., Phytophthora cinnamomi, Cylindrocladium pauciramosum, Fusarium oxysporum and F. solani. After four months, cultivar ‘Starbright’ was relatively unaffected by all but C. pauciramosum, and had high survival rates. ‘Lucky Star’ had lower survival rates and was severely affected by C. pauciramosum. ‘Parke’s Star’ was severely affected by all the fungi tested, especially by F. oxysporum and C. pauciramosum, which was particularly pathogenic across the three cultivars tested.
