It could be proliferation. It's poorly understood but I'd prune out the affected stems, feed, mulch and water.

Conifers can give up the ghost on a whim in my experience.

If theyre in the ground I wouldn't water them either. Lupins will grow in dry soil, as in my garden and they're huge this year . Wisteria once established need little attention other than pruning as well. The ones I look after get a handful of growmore in early spring and that's it.
