I have a daisy in my yard that I transplanted from my father’s yard about 6 yrs ago. Up until this year it has been healthy, blooming each Fall. I noticed the leaves looks shriveled, brown. Not sure what is going on with it. I have attached a photo, hopefully it is clear enough to give you an idea of what I am inquiring about. Any ideas?

This is a fungal infection. I am getting a lot of this at this time of year! Luckily, I believe that this particular one can be cured.

Apply DOLOMITIC lime and wettable sulfur to the area, and give it a few weeks. This will take care of the infection, and recondition the soil.

After you notice new growth, cut off any infected growth and burn or dispose of them very far away.
