Abstract:Vegetatively propagated perennial ornamental plants are often infected with viruses and serve as virus reservoirs for infection ill vegetables and other crops. Common virus sources such as chrysanthemum, gladiolus, dahlia, and lily are widely distributed to many parts of the world. Tomato aspermy, cucumber mosaic, yellow bean mosaic, tomato spotted wilt, and aster yellows viruses are serious because efficient vectors are generally present. Other viruses such as tobacco ring spot and tomato ring spot are also widely distributed in gladiolus and other hosts but lack efficient vectors.
