    One of my oldest and most vigorous plants, a Blc Copper Queen, is showing for the first time features that I think are virus. I've enclosed a picture of leaf. Is this the correct diagnosis. BTW, this plant has not been touched with a shear or any other implement for years and is only now showing symptoms.

    I don't know if I would jump to that conclusion. Send in a sample to critter creek. Then you will know for sure.

    I agree with Forrest. Critter Creek is your best bet. They are awesome.

    Thanks, guys! Just checked out their web site - just a few bucks get you a real test.

    Hey, Dave! What is the test result? I don't think it is a virus plant.
