Symptoms

- A silver sheen can be seen on woody plant foliage, or on closer inspectation brown stains in the wood tissue. Discoloured foliage may appear on only one or two branches, which then begin to die back. Fruit may develop on dead wood, forming small, purple or brown structures covered in a white wool or fuzz. The spores produced cause new infections, occurring in fruit trees from September to May.

Please note: Silvering may also result from severe insect infestation, cold weather conditions, extreme drought or malnutrition.
