Can someone diagnose this problem

I have two of these about 15ft apart. One is healthy and growing. The other has all the new growth killed by, something?

Here is the plant in question:

Here is the other one about 15 ft away:

Any clue what is causing this? We moved here about 1 1/2 yr ago and the diseased plant looked like that and has continued to get worse. Yet the other one is healthy.

Hi Jane,

Looks like 'frizzle top' or manganese deficiency. Check out this site for more info on treatment.

Good luck,

Here is a link that might be useful: deficiency dieases

I agree with Adam! It can definitely recover if you give it the manganese it is missing.
Good luck!
