Brown Spots on Lilac Leaves?

Answer

Brown spots on the leaves of your lilacs are caused by a fungal disease called anthracnose which develops in the soil and attacks the leaves of the lilac. This leads to early falling of leaves, wilting and death in case it is severe. You can prevent it by picking up leaves or branches from the garden that can act as a host to the fungus and allow it continue growing.
