Lancashire, United Kingdom
we have 2 plants in the garden, both meant to be evergreen and both now looking dead. The first is Sollya Heterophylla which after we bought it last spring, flowered non stop right through the autumn. Its little blue flowers were lovely. We have 2 of these and both have now lost all there leaves and are just skeletol. The stems are dark brown/black. I knew they werent hardy so they were both protected with fleece. Does anyone else have them and do you think they are dead?
The second is rhyncospermum jasminoides. Again the lovely red autumn leaves have all turned black and its meant to be evergreen. Is that a likely casualty as well?
There are no signs of new growth on either of these plants, unlike everything else in the garden.
