Rand, Ray, Lois, Others,
My first experience with arisaema rust was last year. The past two
springs have been exceptionally wet, cloudy and cool and I feel this has
a lot to do with seeing the rust and it's spread. A friend over in
eastern Kentucky says it is quite widespread in wild stands. I have
observed it in isolated patches among stands along the Ohio River in
southern Indiana both years.

AR>I agree. In my part of North America, Hollyhocks, are well known to
AR>contract rust. A few other plants also. A. triphyllum, in my experience
AR>(Over 20 years with this) seems to be immune to rust, however, I have heard
AR>(on this list) that
AR>A. sikokianum can fall prey to rust.
