Q.Dying boxwoods

Zone zone 7 | anoblitt added on May 2, 2012 | Answered

Boxwoods are dying. I have searched and determined that it could be any number of problems. I understand I probably cannot replace the dead shrubs immediately. Will I need to change out all 13 shrubs? What would be a possible easy shrub to replace them with? Do not think I want more than 1 variety. Thank you very much.

Whether of not you need to replace all of them, would depend on several factors, such as if they were all affected, what they were affected with and if it was treatable.

As a replacement, I would consider Japanese Holly. They look similar but are not susceptible to the same diseases.
