Thank You for the response. After reading about verticillium will on the web, I understand that it is a cousin to the fusarium blight. I have more questions and hope that you can provide some insights. Is there a fungicide that would be more effective against verticillium? Also, I have cedar mulch surrounding the Magnolia. Is it possible that this may contribute to the growth of verticillium?
