What\'s wrong with my loropetalum?? Had to trim it back twice last year. The last time in Oct. Now they look brown, don\'t appear to have any new growth and very few flowers. They were gorgeous up until this point. They\'ve been in the ground for 5 years. If you break a twig off they don\'t appear to be dead...Help

These could have suffered a fungal infection. I recommend applying, both, wettable sulfur and dolomitic lime. This will kill off the infection, and condition the soil back to a more suitable condition. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/loropetalum/loropetalum-shrubs.htm
