Can you post pictures? That would tell us a lot. Also, has anything around them changed lately? Watering, sun, fertilizer?

Pictures and a rough location would indeed help.

Yes, we do need to know your location to advise you on this. Please fill in your location in your profile.

It seems to me that there have been weather conditions all over the country that could be giving a lot of plants trouble. The west has had a very long, cold wet winter and spring - not much you can do about that. The Southeast has had hardly any rain all winter, so plants that normally wouldn't need watering might have needed a lot of help. My garden doesn't do all that well with prolonged use of irrigation, due to the high pH of my well water.
