I have a SW facing patio and small very shaded garden area. My problem is that 3 of my shrubs:
Mexican orange blossom, in the garden (but close to an encroaching elder tree)
Miniature hydrangea "Rosy Summer", also in the garden, next to a full size hydrangea which is unaffected.
Spirea Japonica "Gold Flame" miniature, potted, on the patio.
All 3 are growing well, with plenty of new growth. They have shown signs of budding, but recently the top new growth has started to wilt, and is drooping and apparently dying off. The lower growth seems unaffected. They have been watered regularly when necessary, and fed a couple of times this spring.
What has happened, and what can I do to reverse it?
