It's a disease on plants. It can cause cankers in dead sections of barks on a tree. It can lead to bark rot and weak branches.

This is fungal plant disease affecting the leaves of trees. It may cause severe defoliation (the leaves die and fall off) and could kill the infected tree. Pruning the affected parts and getting rid of the fallen leaves could help in stopping the spread of the disease. Spraying fungicide is also helpful in this case.

Honeysuckle disease is a relatively common fungal infection of the honeysuckle plant. It is amongst a group of fungal infections that cause the condition known as leaf blight.


Answer by  Ginny (2251)

The most common honeysuckle disease is leaf blight which is caused by a fungus that attacks the young new leaves first. The particular organism that causes it only attacks honeysuckle. The leaves become wrinkled and then turn yellow and fall off. Good air flow between plants helps discourage it, and using a fungicide can help get rid of it.
