Myrtle rust affects members of the Myrtaceae family, which includes New Zealand Christmas Bush, New Zealand Myrtle, Swamp Maire, and Eucalypts. Young plants and soft new growth are most likely to be infected.
Can start with small purplish spots. Develops mature bright yellow, powdery spores on leaves and, sometimes, fruit. Leaves can become contorted and purplish-red pigmentation can occur. Soft plant material can die.
