A Fungus Amungus
My sad, but lovely, gardenia tree has been attacked by fungus ... or aliens ... or worse.
What the ?
I can't decide if it looks more like a creature from outer space or coral from the deeps of the seas. Either way, icky.
From what I've read these visitors aren't really harmful to the plant. I'm not convinced and will be trying to remove the little uglies.
This poor tree has never fared well, having grown about 1/2" in the 7 years it has lived in this house, but each season it does produce the most wonderful smelling flowers. She deserves better than this!
