Jack in the Pulpit

Asked May 24, 2020, 9:42 PM EDT

Should I be worried about the "fungus" growing on the Jack in the Pulpit in our shade garden? This is the first year we've seen what looks to be unhealthy Jack in the Pulpit. Please advise!

It looks like rust which is a fungal disease that is common when it is wet and things are overcrowded. Compare to this info. https://extension.umn.edu/plant-diseases/rust-flower-garden

Okay, thanks!
