Verticillium Wilt of Cotinus'golden Spire'
My golden Smoke Bush (tree-form,7' tall,3 years old well established have all the symptoms of Verticillium Wilt.About 90% of leaves and tips of the brunches are dried out.I did not prune it yet. Will wait until next early Spring when the tree will be still in dormant state.
My question is: Have the tree any chance to live? Or this is a lost case as I have learned searching Internet?
I would appreciate any answer.
