White Sollya

I have a raised border, at one end I have a white sollya which is thriving.I also had one the other end of the border that I had to replace last year because it died. This year it seems to be happening again. Can you tell me if I am doing something wrong. Many Thanks, Marge Thomas.

I did find with some research that that are many reports of such die off; with varying reasons.

Too dry or lack of water, plants do not recover well.
To wet and damp conditions cause fungus issues.
Spider Mites attack and kill off these vines.

Regular pruning can help thin out the plant and improve circulation.
Mulch the roots to help keep them cool and retain moisture.
Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer but avoid fertilizing late in the season.

White Sollya

I have a raised border about 25ft long. I have a Sollya at one end that has done really well for the last 4-5 yrs. I got a second one for the other end of the border 2yrs ago & it died. I replaced it last year with another one & it seemed to be doing well, but I now notice it looks as though it is starting to go yellow & fade. Am I doing something wrong? Hope you can help, Many thanks, Marge Thomas
