cydonia rust

Posted: 29/06/2012 at 15:05

Cydonia oblonga (Vranja) develops rust over all the leaf and all of the leaves every spring.  the leaves fall off each time and the six-yearold tree grows new ones.  sometimes the flowers manage to set fruit but then they fall off.  it grows in a sunny, sheltered but not airless spot,  The soil is well drained and  consists of loam.  All sprays are only for ornamentals - any ideas?

What's this?

I'm sure it's persicaria, too.  There are reds and pale pink ones &, ref. RHS, varieties such as 'Dimity', 'Donald Lowndes',and 'Superba' are shades of pink.  Leaves often turn red in autumn.  Check out in the RHS encyclopaedia.
