Q.Sunshine Ligustrum Leaf Drop

Zone 37922 | Anonymous added on May 3, 2022 | Answered

I have 8 sunshine ligustrum shrubs in the front of my house. They are 4 years old. They looked amazing until about 2 weeks ago when one shrub started dropping its leaves. Now, the next one closest to it is starting to lose them as well. I’m afraid that the next one in line may be affected as well. I’m assuming this is some sort of an infection? What is my course of action? Can they be saved?

Sometimes too much water will cause the same symptoms as underwatering. they may also have developed a fungus or powdery mildew. I would suggest doing a careful inspection and perhaps consulting with your local extension service if the problem continues. Also, be sure you're not overwatering. This article may be helpful:
