|Hi... I seem to be having a problem with some of my ground shrubs. They are turning brown, but don't seem to be drying out, just changing color. I have attached some photos and I am a novice at plant identification. But you can see some of the same plant is still green and healthy, but a lot of it has turned brown. The plant has been there since 2002 and this have never occurred. I have attached a photo of the green and brown areas and one of the healthy plant for identification. I live in Birmingham, Al if that makes a difference and we've had a couple of abnormal cold winters last and this year... will they survive or do I need to take some action?
Thanks in advance...

|First of all, Always good to see new members.
You said they don't seem dried out, just a color change and that it's been colder than usual. Some plants do change color when the temps drop. It isn't anything to worry about. I don't know what your plant is but with the info you've given, that would be my guess. Things should green up with warmer temps. If not or if leaves dry out and fall off, a closer inspection is in order.
Good luck and keep us posted.

|Hi Kelly, to All Things Plants!
Your lovely plants remind me of Shore Juniper; there are a couple listed in the database with photos: http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Shore+Juniper&but... and I agree with zencat, if it's just the color changing and not drying branches I'd say it probably has to do weather changes.
