Butterfly Bush Leaves Are Curling And Black And Roots Have A Fungus

Question From: Newark, Delaware, United States
Q: Butterfly bush leaves are curling up with black on them roots have a fungus what can I use on them to keep healthy bushes thanks

A: Sounds like they might have aphids and the black is sooty mold feeding on the honey dew from the bugs. Take a sample to your local independent garden center for a recommendation of action. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
