I would have said not a chance....but was very surprised when searching for links to see that Burncoose sell it...but it must be kept frost free.

Dying plant in a hedge

Janet do you mean the tropical plant Murraya paniculata?

This web site is based in UK ....this tropical plant that you are using  as a hedging plant is not very familiar to us here.


Incase it had a disease I feel you would be well advised to remove it.....just incase the problem spreads to the rest of the hedge.


Quote wiki....


 "M. paniculata is vulnerable to soil nematodes, scales, sooty mold and whiteflies. M. paniculata is the preferred host to the insect pest Diaphorina citri, the citrus psyllid. This psyllid is the vector for the citrus greening disease."

I have never seen Euonymus europaeus Red Cascade as a huge tree...with a large trunk


Normally it is a multistemmed slightly weeping shrub.

I am dealing with this as a genuine question.


The 1st  and 4th pic are acceptable.( 2 and 3 no good)


Spelling is not everyones forte...mine is pretty terrible.


Please be  charitable.....English may not be his first language.

I agree with nutcutlet.


Possibly Aucuba japonica "Rozannie"..

John..maybe you could try to get really sharp clear pics.


Just a suggestion....Crataegus prunifolia or similar.


See link

markos..I have continued to search.


I need more info.....Please can you pick a leaf.


Does it have marks on the underside that look like this pic.?


Quote..."This is one of the easiest hebes to identify, due to the two lines of small pits (domatia) on the underside of the leaves."
