My duranta trees leaves are falling off. Why?
I received the plant for mother's day this year and live in Michigan. It's still flowering and the leaves are still green but falling off. How do I stop it?

This plant generally resists a lot of diseases. It can, however, be infested by pests such as scales, mealy bugs, and nematodes.
In case of a scale infestation, use a horticultural oil to spray the plant with. Mealy bugs are easy to spot, thanks to the cottony masses they grow as, and can easily be gotten rid of by spraying the plant with water from a gardening hose.
