I hope you can help. We just had new landscaping done about four months ago. We have four Hoogendorn plants that looked very nice and green until the last couple of weeks. I have no directions on how to take care of them. They have now turned all brown. Is that supposed to happen when fall comes or are they dead? Out of the four, only one is still green. Thanks for your help.

Ilex crenata 'Hoogendorn'is an evergreen and should not turn brown at all, so these may be dead. I would strongly suggest you consult with your landscaper or retailer if there was a warranty. This type of failure can be caused by inadequate watering, overwatering, transplant shock, poor rooting, or possibly by a pest or disease problem. Your local professionally trained nurseryman and/or county extension should be able to help you determine what happened so you can have better success with any replacements -- either the same shrub or something else.
