Q.Volutella Blight on pachysandra

Zone 20191 | Anonymous added on April 2, 2019 | Answered

I have a large patch of about 5 ft. by 4 ft. which is completely bare amongst a full area of pachysandra which still appears healthy. The area of infection is spreading, however.
What chemical can I purchase to get rid of the blight? It was diagnosed by Va Extension service.

My solution is to use wettable sulfur and dolomitic lime. You can also use copper fungicide sprays, but I still prefer the method mentioned before. This can help clear the soil of the infection. Here is an article for more information on the care of this: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/groundcover/pachysandra/pachysandra-volutella-blight.htm
