Q.What Is Wrong With My Star Jasmine?

Zone 8a | Cdavis1234 added on May 7, 2022 | Answered

My jasmine has black spots on a few leaves & little black egg looking things underneath other leaves. It hasn’t grown any since last fall. I’ve used Bioadvanced 3 in 1 insect & mite control, as well as soapy water on the leaves once. Please help!

I can't quite make out what those are, but they are certainly some insect or egg. Unfortunately, one application of pesticide will not work, typically. Be sure to follow the instructions on the packaging (some have specific instructions for specific plants) to make sure that it is used properly. Likely, it will take a few applications to take care of the issue. I wouldn't be too worried about the slow growth, though. This is typical for the plant.
