Which Plants are Affected?
Most common rose varieties are vulnerable to fire blight infection. Many varieties of pear and apple trees (see image) are also susceptible although some varieties are more at risk than others. Other susceptible trees include mountain ash, hawthorn and cotoneaster. Check with your local nursery or garden centre for information on specific species before you purchase if fire blight is a concern.
