Q.suffering 21 yr. old daphne

Zone 30553 | Patricia Hlavac added on April 26, 2019 | Answered

My daphne has thrived for 21 years and suddenly is dropping leaves. Another one that was 10-12 years started the same way and eventually died. What is it and can I do anything to save it?

20 years is the average lifespan for these plants. Sometimes it will be less. There is nothing that you can do to keep it alive for longer. You will have to replant.
