Unfortunately, this disease can be very destructive, and in some cases, limit the use of the hollyhock as puccinia malvacearum ornamental.

Where there are hollyhocks, there is the possibility of the development of rust disease. There are no specific conditions for rust development; however, windy and wet weather can aid in the spread of this disease. puccinia malvacearum

Rust spores are carried by puccinia malvacearum wind and water, and can infect hollyhocks quite a distance away. As a result, hollyhock rust disease is more prevalent during the spring season after heavy rain. There are several management strategies in regard to hollyhock rust disease: Cut infected plants at the soil line and remove debris as soon as the hollyhocks puccinia malvacearum done flowering.

Abstract Rust fungi infecting hollyhock and other plants in Malveae are frequently intercepted at ports of entry to the USA, particularly Puccinia puccinia malvacearum and P. These two species can be difficult to distinguish and can be further confused puccinia malvacearum other, less common species of microcyclic rust fungi infecting hollyhock: Molecular phylogenetic analysis revealed that P.

A key to the six microcyclic Puccinia species infecting hollyhock is presented.

Puccinia malvacearum (hollyhock rust)

Plant pests that are found during inspections may be barred from entering the USA depending on their risk to agriculture and natural ecosystems and whether the pests are already established within the country.

Some frequently imported plants include puccinia malvacearum of Malvoideae, the mallow subfamily that includes economically important plants puccinia malvacearum as cotton Gossypium hirsutumkenaf Hibiscus cannabinusokra Abelmoschus esculentusand many ornamental plants including hollyhock Alcea rosea Baum et al.


Alcea rosea, a plant grown worldwide, is often puccinia malvacearum at ports of entry infected with rust fungi. Many rust fungi can infect A.

Hollyhock rust, Puccinia malvacearum Pucciniales: Pucciniaceae

Six species of Puccinia have been reported to produce telia on A. Resistant varieties are available in puccinia malvacearum seed trade but these are not reliable in all situations, since different races of the pathogen exist and resistance is not effective against all races of the pathogen.

Fungicides labeled for control of rusts on ornamental plants can be used preventatively for management of this disease. The first application should be made when the first leaves are expanding and treatments should be repeated according to label directions throughout the puccinia malvacearum season.

A wetting agent is recommended, since hollyhock leaves are hairy and good coverage is necessary for fungicide efficacy.
