Q.This Is About My Trumpet Vine
The vine is dying back already. It looks like it is completing dying. This is the 4th year it has been planted and has beautiful orange flowers. I have it on a fence. It has never died back this early. What could be the problem?

A fungus may be affecting the leaves. Many fungus can cause the leaves to die back but will not kill the stems. You can treat it with a fungicide, but at this late stage, you are unlikely to see the leaves grow back before winter.
