Q.Waxleaf Legustrum And Chinese Plum

Zone 78750, Austin, TX | Darlene Huebner added on February 27, 2021 | Answered

Our 35 year old waxleaf legustrums are turning brown and leaves falling after several days of ice and snow. Will bushes this size and age survive? The other shrubs are Chinese Plums. Any help for either? We live in Austin, TX and hate to lose these beauties.

Here are some articles that will help you to care for both:
