Half of my burning bushes have lost their leaves and look dead but they are not. What can I do? I take care of them for a lady and she is upset about this. This is their 2nd year and they are still green, they did not change colors. I have a row of about 20. Thanks.
Where are you located? In Iowa, I have noticed that the burning bush looses its leaves a bit before other shrubs may loose theirs. Same is true for the wahoo, also a member of the euonymus family. They come on again in the spring and just shed a bit early.
I have 5 burning bushes which have finally started to grow and have beautiful foliage in the summer. In late summer/early fall when they should start to turn and become that beautiful red the leaves all fall off of them. Can you tell me what the problem possibly could be and how to care for them? Thank you.
It is either too hot temperatures. OR your area has not been receiving enough rain. Try watering it every day for a while. See if it perks up a little. Here in Tennessee, even tho we have had some rain lately, we are still below the amount of rain that is needed.
You can also call your County Extension Agent about this. They have so much knowledge of your specific area, and what to do for the plants. There are County Extension Agents in every area.....even if you live in a large city that is not considered an agricultural area. (07/29/2008)
