The spots typically enlarge and coalesce, causing the leaves to die from the tip downward. Spots can also occur on stems and flower buds.
Conditions Favoring Disease: Iris leaf spot thrives in rainy conditions in cool to warm temperatures.
How Pathogen Survives/Disperses: In moist latitudes, the fungus over-winters as mycelium in diseased leaves and other plant parts.
