Is this a fungus and how do I get rid of it?

Asked April 22, 2019, 5:59 PM EDT

I have this white fungus type thing in one of my perennial gardens. It's in the mulch, attaching to my clematis, the garage and now stakes in the ground. I'd love to know what it is, how to get rid of it, and how to prevent it from returning. Thanks so much!

1 Response The pictures don’t give enough detail to tell if you have birds nest fungus or artillery fungus or both. Getting rid of the rotting mulch will get rid of much of it. There is no fungicide labeled for control of artillery fungus. It can be scrubbed off but does stain wood.
