Hi, I have this plant growing in my garden, I'm calling it Pink Shamrock....anybody know its real name? Anyway, I've noticed yellow sort of powder under leaves and it's killing some of the them. Am I right in thinking this is some kind of fungus? Sorry about the photo, something wrong with my camera I think Sad

Thanks,
Tom

DEfintely looks like a fungus. Not sure if you want to try some spray that will keep the fungus at bay- perhaps there is something organic that wont kill bees etc etc. Have a nice google around for organic fungacide Smile

Looks like oxalis to me, too.
I recently bought some stuff called 'Garlic Wonder Organic' in the hope of reducing the prevalence of blackspot on a couple of my roses. It's too early to say how well it works. Mostly, I don't have problems with fungi.

Looks like a fungus alrigt tomzzz. one called rust. I'd just pick away and burn the affected leaves. Good guy is right i'd say on his identification of the plant as oxalis and if that is the case then you would be doing well to kill that tough bugger.
