Last year, I planted three Plum Passion Nandina Monum's on the north side of my house, in the backyard. They're spaced several feet apart. The area gets lots of summer afternoon sun and less sun the rest of the year. I just noticed that one plant has powdery mildew, which probably spread from some Magic Carpet Spirea nearby. Now, as we go into fall, there is less and less sun back there. I'm not sure if I'll spray with some sulfur, or just prune out the mildewed branches. Other than a little mildew, they seem to be doing fine. Any ideas? I have a very small lot and no place to transplant these expensive plants.
