First Report of Association Between Delphinium and Peziza repanda

S. N. Wegulo, M. Vilchez, and J. Menge

February 2005


Delphinium is a popular field-grown cut flower. In February 2004, a grower expressed concern about an abundant fungal growth. The fungus was identified as Peziza repanda. This fungus is common in nurseries that raise plugs on container media amended with wood material. Nursery growers should be aware of the potential for contamination of these media with spores of fungi commonly associated with wood. This report documents the first observation of an association between delphinium and an ascomycetous cup fungus.
