J. E. Woodward, M. R. Vandiver, K. L. Ong, and S. A. McBride

July 2012


Vinca spp. are commonly planted in gardens and landscapes as a groundcover. In May 2009, diseased periwinkle (Vinca minor L.) plants were obtained from an established residential landscape in Muleshoe, TX. Both Golovinomyces orontii (Castagne) V.P. Heluta and Puccinia vincae were identified as pathogens in the samples. Whereas both G. orontii and P. vincae have been reported on Vinca minor in the United States, this is the first report of each in Texas.
