In the years 2004–2006 the species P. sclareae was isolated from sage stems showing the symptoms in the form of bark peeling off and breaking. On the basis of 5 isolates randomly chosen from the fungus population, morphology and the conditions of temperatures favourable for the most intensive growth and creation of the fungus infectious material were studied. The temperature of −6°C was viewed as unfavourable for the fungus growth, and that of 32°C was considered to prevent the formation of picnidia and conidia. The dynamic growth of the colonies and the formation of numerous picnidia and conidia were observed at the temperatures ranging from 20°C to 28°C.
