I've not seen any rust infection on these two big A.laevis at the library 
in town, and I've been eating berries off of them for the past 3 years.
I've got about a dozen A.alnifolia varieties growing at the house - so far, 
no problems with them or the A.lamarckii and A.obovata selections.

When we took the kids to Holiday World, at Santa Claus, IN last year, they 
had "Autumn Brilliance", an A.Xgrandiflora selection, planted all over the 
place, and the bushes had lots of heavily rust-infected fruit on them.
