 As John Lanier said===Yes. 
Besides his treatment, you might try this: Uproot crown and roots and trim 
off the dead tissue. Sprinkle with a fungicide such as Captan. Put the roots 
in the sun for a day. Replant. (Be sure not to plant in same place whence it 
came.. Douse that area with Clorox.)

Bon chance,
