The NPPO of Germany recently informed EPPO of the first finding of
_Xylella fastidiosa_ (EPPO A1 List) on its territory. The bacterium
was detected on a single plant of _Nerium oleander_ in a nursery in
Saxony. In 1 greenhouse, during an official phytosanitary inspection,
1 potted oleander showing unusual symptoms was observed. This plant
belonging to private owners had been brought to the greenhouse for the
first time to overwinter and had been produced by cutting from another
plant belonging to a private person at least 4 years before.
