Melissa,

The effects of a long summer along with a little insect or disease here and there can leave the plant in such a condition. I would either do some selective trimming to remove dead foliage or wait until late winter and then cut the entire plant back to remove all the leaves. It will then regrow fresh new foliage.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
