my 10 yr old weigela has suddenly developed dieback on all the inner leaves of this plant , the plant is showing a brown margin an all the inner leaves of the plant but the outer leaves are looking health , i can only presume that the whole of the plant will die back. there has been no frost to date and the plant has not been damaged, any advice would be most welcome.
I am not sure what you mean by die-back-they naturally lose their leaves in the autumn-if you have had it for 10 years-what exactly is unusual about this year?
Just a bit puzzled
Also puzzled, sounds like weigela in November
thank you sotongeoff and nutcutlet for your promp reply .
the difference this year is the plant is looking entirely different regarding its condition to other years and seems to be losing its leaves a lot earlier, i will keep a close watch on it and see what developes, once again thanks for the helpful advice
This is happening to my weigela variegata too. It hasn't lost it's leaves yet, but the leaves on a couple of branches on one side have gone all droopy looking and don't look like the rest of the shrub. It's not just because it's autumn, it's nor normally like this.
