I have this plant and every year when summer starts the leaves go all white and it dies back slowly. Ive tried spraying it and nothing happens. Please help !!




Whatever it is, it looks very cramped in that pot - perhaps it needs re potting in a much larger one.

Looks a bit like a honeysuckle of some kind. If it's possible I would cut it back, remove it from the pot and give it a new home in the garden where it might be happier.

Agreed, Honeysuckles are very prone to mildew when they are dry at the roots and in a pot they often get very dry at the roots, even if watered regularly.
