Ceanothus carmel creeper
Below is a pic of my carmel creeper with just one branch dieing off. Its 3.5 years in the ground and 12+ feet wide.
The branch is still very firm not soft and squishy.
Further out on the branch where it's dead it isn't black and you can see 2 smaller branches growing out of the black...but I expect them to die off also.
The rest of the plant is all very healthy.
I've been searching on this black damage and found nothing.
Anybody know what could be wrong?
I guess I should cut the 4 feet off since dead probably a couple inches back into green.
I am very surprised it did this well in my zone.
