First Report of Arabis mosaic virus Infecting Vinca minor in Ohio

J. R. Fisher

September 2013


These results represent the first confirmed report of Arabis mosaic virus (ArMV) infecting periwinkle (Vinca minor) in Ohio. Growers should be aware of ArMV as a threat to the industry due to its wide host range and ease of transmission, and of Vinca minor as a potential perennial reservoir for the virus since periwinkle is propagated by seed, division, and by cuttings.
