While this disease affects primarily the plum and apple, many other fruit-trees and shrubs are liable to it. The peach is sometimes victim to Silver Leaf, but it never suffers so generally and so extensively as others of the stone - fruits like the plum. The characteristics, cause and other features are discussed under Plum, page 368.
