Agriculture officials have warned nurseries not to spread the boxwood blight through the Christmas wreath trade.
A fungus that kills boxwoods was found in October 2011 at unidentified nursery businesses in North Carolina with fields in Virginia. That was a first in the region, according to a report from the Virginia Cooperative Extension.
The fungal pathogen known as Cylindrocladium buxicola causes severe dieback and defoliation in boxwood leaves and branches.
