First report of white rust of Aurinia saxatilis (Alyssum saxatile) caused by Albugo candida in Washington State
Albugo candida, cause of white rust, is reported to occur on Aurinia saxatilis (synonym: Alyssum saxatile). The pathogen was found on landscape plants growing in a private garden in Seattle, WA where it over-wintered on infected leaves. This appears to be the first report of A. candida on this host in the USA.
