Phytophthora cinnamomi reported on ivy (Hedera helix)

In 1989, Phytophthora cinnamomi (EU Annex II/B) was isolated from ivy (Hedera helix) pot plants in two Danish glasshouse nurseries. Symptoms were characterized by brown, rotten roots and stems, and brown areas developing from the base of the leaves. The authors pointed out that this is the first report of P. cinnamomi on ivy in Europe.
