Dying Boxwoods

jay_nj(Zone 6)May 26, 2011

Good Day!

Can someone tell me what's going on here? I've got a long row of boxwoods and they're degrading rapidly. Notice the "hole" starting in the center of bush -- once that happens, it's down hill from there. Anything I can do to bring them back?

Impossible to tell with info provided. WAG based on scant info is winter weather soaking roots.

That's what I was thinking -- root rot. Dig out a recently dead, or nearly dead, one and look.

I found this site online from the Virginia Tech cooperative Extension. It discusses winter damage and has another link to diseases of boxwoods. I wish I had known that my boxwoods were so tender before I planted them in the Windy City

Here is a link that might be useful: Boxwoods in the Landscape
