Can you name this plant
I think it has a disease can it be cured does anyone know what it is and what the plant is called
South West UK
My guess is it's a Physocarpus "Diablo"
And the disease is Scale insect, possibly Brown Scale:
The shrub doesn't look to big to manually clear them by scraping them off using a soft plastic spatula or stiff brush. A bucket of slightly soapy water helps and you might want to wear gloves as their removal makes a rather sticky mess!
A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
Thank you very helpful
