My Otto Lukens will flurish and be beautiful; then all of a sudden parts of them turn brown and die or I either have tiny holes in the leaves. Can you tell me what the problem is and how to solve it? Thanks!

Though Otto Luyken Laurel has no serious pest or disease problems, a condition known as "shotgun disease" can be a problem in hot and humid areas of the South. There is no cure for this condition outside of providing good ventilation. In the warmer climate of the South, Otto Luyken Laurel seems to thrive better with afternoon shade.
