rust on mature Lilly Pilly tree

tree keeps attempting new growth (lots) but it is quickly destroyed by a yellow rust - I suspect this is myrtle rust. Have cut affected ends of branches off, there is more new growth, seemingly unaffected for now. However, it is evident some rust is still present. I do not want to lose this tree. Is there any treatment for protecting new growth/irradicating problem?

Answer: Hi Donna,

Thank you for contacting Yates, it’s very likely myrtle rust infestation as it’s a persistent new fungal disease that affect all myrtaceae family. Try Yates Zaleton Dual Action Systemic Fungicide, in the rate of 11 drops per L of water. Click here for more info:

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
