Help! My Green-Leaved Euryops is dying... - Knowledgebase Question

I planted a green-leaved Euryops last May and it has bloomed all summer. It has always been a very healthy shrub until just recently. It is not longer blooming and the branches have all turned brown. It is planted in the front of my house's landscaping so it has gotten alot of TLC. I am perplexed. Any ideas what may have happened to it? I have never fertilized it since it has always been so healthy. Do I need to? Is there anything I can do to save it?

Bonnie,

It may have been too dry or too soggy wet for a period of time. It could also be due to spider mites which will go away on their own with the arrival of cool weather. Try to keep the soil evenly moist and wait to fertilize until next spring. If the initial damage was not too severe, it should be able to recover in time.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
