Wisteria Has Just Died

Anonymous added on June 3, 2015 | Answered

Our Wisteria, which had lovely flowers this year (it is about 10 years old), has literally just died. The whole tree is brown and brittle. It seemed to happen over night. Is there anything that can be done?

It sounds like it may have been hit by overspray from someone spraying weedkiller. Were you or a neighbor spraying anything like that recently? The wind may have carried it to the plant. If the leaves died, there is still a chance that the stems have survived. If only the leaves died, it will grow back. This article will help you determine if it is truly dead or just defoliated: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm
