    Phoytoplasmas are associated with abnormal development. In Napier Grass phytoplasma infection causes dwarfing characterized by foliar yellowing, little leaves, proliferation of tillers and shortening of internodes.  Infection of the Madagascan periwinkle causes phyllody, a process where petals become like leaves.
