  • Privets dying – is this Honey Fungus (Armillaria) ?

    Created by reg on

    Hello, I have lost three of my 40 privet bushes. They were located next to each other. They died in consecutive order over about a period of a year. Please see the pics. I am wondering if this Honey Fungus (Armillaria) as described in this article https://blog.fantasticservices.com/solved-privet-hedge-dying-for-no-apparent-reason-mystery-and-treatment/ . The symptoms do not match the article exactly. I have fungus on the bark, not mushrooms. I am in Los Angeles. Shrubs do not get direct sun so the ground is usually moist.
