my burning bush looks dead
my burning bush was fine last year, with one dead branch, this year almost the entire tree did not bloom, with just a small amount at the top of one part, what could be the cause, I live just northwest of Chicago Illinois
Several diseases can affect burning bush plants, including cankers, fungal spots and powdery mildew. One of the most serious is coral spot nectria canker, a fungal disease that can causes discoloration and growths on bark, cambium and sapwood and can cause dieback and eventual death of the plant. Since weather stresses are often a cause, avoid pruning burning bush shrubs in drought or summer months. Serious pest infestations include winged euonymus scales and the spider mite. A horticultural oil, insecticidal soap or insecticide may be required during severe outbreaks.
