Elderberry branches dying
We planted 4 elderberry bushes a year and a half ago. They have grown beautifully and until recently we have had no problems. In the last month we have seen some of the lower branches die on 2 of the bushes. There do not appear to be any bugs and nothing is being eaten. The remainder of the bushes appear healthy. We live in the Midwest and our summer is quite hot and humid this year. I'm attaching a photo. Do you have any suggestions for us?
