Bought two new lilacs last year. One looks good. The other one looked sad all year. Weepy, rolled leaves...

Fast forward this year and it's damaged as can be. Wilted parts. Sparse growth. Here are pics. Top photo is healthy one.

Please help. What is it!!!??? Thank you.

You aren't where I would expect this to happen (maybe a lot of rain this year?) but look up Lilac Bacterial Wilt.

Are your plants under the water eve of the house?
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

No, it is not underneath a downspout. The one closest to the downspout is fine. So can this be treated? Any one have an idea if or how? Thank you.
