Leaves curling up on burning bushes

Zone Central Iowa | mac@netins.net added on July 27, 2015 | Answered

I have several dwarf burning bushes. Some are looking fine, but several of them have leaves curling up and aren't as full as the others. Any ideas why?

Leaf curl can be caused by insects or disease.
Inspect the leaves for signs of either.

Treat with Neem Oil as this works as both an insecticide and fungicide.
I know I have trouble with Spider Mites in my Burning Bush this time of year in my garden.

Here are some links for you.
