Dying Viburnum Cranberry Bush
We have a Viburnum Cranberry Bush that after a hard winter in 2010 (or maybe even disease, insects, etc.) came back in the spring with foliage on only half of the branches. We cut off the dead branches and thought we would see if it would come back better the following season but it still came back the same way. Anything we can do or do we need to just replace it?

The plant could have a fungus of some sort. Other than pruning off dead growth, treat the shrub with a fungicide and see if this helps. Also, be sure to remove any leaf litter from around the plant to prevent spreading of the fungus.
