Q.Why is my morning glory plant dying?

Zone 10019 | Livingsum added on July 13, 2019 | Answered

See attached photo. I have had MG plants grow from the same large container for a number of years. They have always been vibrant and aggressive, covering my balcony with large green leaves and producing vibrant purple flowers in the Fall. Now it looks like the plant is dying very early. See attached picture. It’s in a large container pot with other plants (including Bee Balm), so maybe it is being crowded out? Soil has a ton of new organic matter and some fertilizer, so that does not appear to be the issue. It’s also in full sun, which it loved in previous years. Any insight would be appreciated. Thx.

That appears to be spider mite damage. You will need to treat that immediately, as it will quickly spread and kill all plants nearby.
