White blister rust

Albugo candida

The fungus infects leaves and floral parts, causing distinctive white, raised pustules to form underneath the plant epidermis. These blisterlike pustules sometimes result in twisted, deformed growth of the stem, leaves, or flowers. When mature, the epidermis covering the pustule will rupture, releasing powdery white sporangia (a type of spore) that can be carried by winds or splashing water onto neighboring host plants. Severely infected leaves can wither and die.
