2 year old Indian Hawthorne looks dead - Knowledgebase Question

I have several Indian Hawthornes planted around my house. I think they're about 2 years old. One of them looks dead. All of the leaves are brown and beginning to fall off. I've tried looking at the leaves for clues but I don't see anything. What happened to it and how can I keep the others from dying?

Your hawthorne may have developed a fungal disease or water stress may be causing root rot. It's really difficult to diagnose without seeing the plant. You may be able to get a positive diagnosis if you take a sample of one of the branches (and leaves) to your local extension office. Contact Clemson University Extension, 313 South Towers Street, Anderson, SC 29624, Phone: 864-226-1581

Best wishes with your hawthorne!
