Bird of Paradise (Crane Flower) Dying

Anonymous added on May 6, 2014 | Answered

The plant is 12 years old. Bloomed fantastically until last year. This year nothing and it appears to be dying. Shoots grow to 3 or 4 feet then droop and die. Full sun, regular watering via neighborhood irrigation system. Fertilized regularly (3 - 4 times a year). What do I need to do to save it?
