|This was my hydrangea a few years ago in the fall. It was a large, beautiful, healthy plant. Then within a couple of days it looked like this _|
|Some kind of fungus? When I dug it up this spring, the roots didn't show signs of root rot. The leaves didn't develop any black spots. It looked like someone took a blow torch to it.|
On a better note, the battle I've been fighting the last couple of years with the viburnum leaf beetle seems to have been won - by ME!! My snowball bush is gorgeous this year and covered with snowballs.
