@lexijane it looked really poorly after the winter but it started to pick up. Then the drought finished it off 🤦‍♀️

That’s such a shame. Will you get another one? Mine are quite established so think that’s how they survived @suerichards

Love these and I've just discovered they I can get a dwarf one that would look lovely in my garden Lexi so it's my turn to put one of your plants in my wish list. My mum has a beautiful one, but it would be too big so a dwarf one is ideal 💙💙💙

Oh dear Lexi... is this a sudden change or has it been going this way for a while ?

@icedance Sam, it's normally stunning. I've cut out dead bits before & its flowered but the buds don't look right to me. I keep seeing lovely ones in people's gardens & wonder if mine has had it 🤔😫

3w
comment
icedance

They can just suddenly give up the ghost I'm afraid 😳 how old is it ? I find the larger leaved varieties can be a bit more tender ❄️ maybe give it a feed and when it's not frosty any more cut the dead bits off best to leave them for now to protect the wood underneath. I can't say if it's environmental or disease at this stage but cutting it back now would allow cold in which can cause worse damage. I've seen them cut back hard and recover well so I hope all is not lost 🤞

It's about 8 years old give or take. Thanks for the advice, I'll feed it & keep an eye on it 😊
