Sunday Fungi: Gardener’s Bane

I doubt there’s a gardener alive who’ll be happy to see this fungus spreading along the branches of fruit bushes and nut trees…

Coral spot, a fungal infestation

If you happen to see it in your garden, I found this link with advice on how to treat it and limit its spread.

Of course, if you see it in the wilds, it looks quite pretty.

    Interesting that it is a fungal infestation, when I first saw it I thought it looked like an aphid infestation. Both detrimental, but pretty in an odd way.

    Funny how things that destroy or are poisonous are so colourful… I know in animals, it’s a warning so maybe in plant life it is as well?
