Q.Cardinal flowers

Zone 7a | co692op added on July 10, 2019 | Answered

Every year my cardinal flowers seem to get very tan at the base of the plant,
and then the whole plant wilts and eventually dies. Can you tell me what the
problem is and how to correct it?

It is likely to be a Pythium root rot. This infection will remain in the soil.
