Do Japanese maples with verticillium ever recover?
I have a viridis Japanese maple that was planted in front of my house about 3 years ago. It's now having dieback that appears to be caused by verticillium (the pruned branches show that dark streaking.)
Has anyone been sucessful in saving an infected tree? About 1/3 of the tree has died back. Or should I call it quits now and replace it with something resistant?
