List expanded of Xylella host plants requiring a passport

To prevent the spread of Xylella bacteria, there is a list of which host plants require a passport when being traded within the EU. Recently, this list was revised.

Xylella fastidiosa causes a highly damaging bacterial disease and has around 400 host plants. In the Netherlands, this puts at risk almost the entire tree nursery assortment, a number of perennials, and many bedding, container and pot plants.

Host plants of Xylella are required to have a plant passport. The following host plants were recently added to the list:
  • Cercis siliquastrum
  • Cytisus villosus
  • Ficus carica
  • Fraxinus angustifolia
  • Lavandula x intermedia
  • Prunus domestica
  • Rosa canina
  • Vitis vinifera
