Daisies being attacked

Asked April 28, 2020, 7:08 AM EDT

Last summer my were attacked by "something" that caused the leaves to get rusty looking and dry up. They still flowered but the leaves were very unsightly. What can I do to prevent this without harming pollinators? Thank you!

Please check out the fact sheet on common diseases of daisies.
