Q.Can You Please Diagnose My Vitex And Boxwood?
The Vitex was recently transplanted. It wilted the leaves turned brown and the base has a type of fungus on it. The Boxwood is new plant. It has turned brown and crunchy.
Wilted leaves suggest a watering problem, possibly made worse by hot summer weather and the roots being cut off by the transplant. The watering problem can be too much water too: the fungus you refer to is simply lichen, a harmless organism that likes humid environments. The brown boxwood leaves suggest a winter injury, a lack of water or root rot.
