What product will work best for treating rust on Flax Lily plants, Honor Guard or EWZ40?

I have applied honor guard and ewz40 with monthly and they still get rust. When this happens (rust) I end up cutting the plant down to get rid of the rust. What product would you suggest?

Answer:

Using products that contain Myclobutanil or Triadimefon have shown to have great results. Otherwise, cutting away infected areas of the flax lily can help halt or slow the spread of disease and allow the plant to recover more quickly. If several plants are infected, you can collect the cuttings in a plastic trash bag as you go, but disinfect the pruning clippers between plants and take the cuttings out of the yard before destroying them. Pruning nearby plants to improve sunlight penetration to the flax lily can help the plant's leaves dry more quickly after rainfall. Many plant pathogens, such as leaf rust, appear following heavy rains.
