Is there something preventative I can use to stop that rust? My beautiful bishops weed or snow on the mountain gets rust on it every year all along my fence and in my yard and it doesn’t matter where it’s planted at so I know it’s must be something in the soil and I do not know how to prevent it. Please help.
I can’t send you a picture of it yet because it hasn’t happened yet I’m trying to avoid it.

You can spray you plants with neem oil regularly to prevent it or remove the leaves as soon as you see it.

Our experts say rust thrives in a wet environment, so don't overwater your plants. Also, make sure they have good air circulation inside the branches and around the plant itself. This will help it dry their leaves faster.
