Attached photo: Hemlock wooly adelgid on hemlock twig

If this photo looks like snow on the branch, you’re wrong! It’s a disease ridden hemlock twig. If you have questions about plants in your garden, take a photo or bring them to Morris Arboretum’s Plant Clinic.

Beginning May 1, 2015, Morris Arboretum’s free Plant Clinic will now be accessible any time the Arboretum is open! This service is available for inquiries related to pest, disease, identification, plant culture or other plant questions. Visitors may leave questions and/or specimens at the front desk in the Widener Visitor’s Center 10am-4pm daily November-March, and 10am-5pm on weekends April-October. Queries may also be posed, as always, via the Plant Clinic phone line (215.247.5777 ext.141) and email address (plntclnc@upenn.edu).
