Disease common to heuchera?

15 years ago

Hi everyone. I have several kinds of heuchera and yesterday I noticed my Key Lime Pie Heuchera has some type of problem. Most of the leaves have turned grey and withered nearly overnight. I inspected several of the leaves and find no insects or larvae. There is healthy new growth coming from the center of the plant. I removed all of the older growth to allow the new healthier leaves to come through.

Is there some kind of common disease to heuchera? The way the leaves just turned grey and withered reminded me of clematis wilt but the stems all remained firm on the heuchera and only the leaves were affected.

Please offer any ideas that you can think of so I can do some research to help prevent any further disease amongst the others.

Thanks so much for your help.
