The sudden oak death fungus (Phytophthora ramorum) has been found on a tree in Pennsylvania that - you guessed it - was purchased from a California nursery. As reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, scientists don't expect that the disease has had a chance to spread, because the camellia tree has been kept indoors since it was received. Much has been reported on SOD at the ISW, click here to see past posts.

Thanks to a member of the ALIENS-L listserver for posting this story.
