Bittersweet Lost All Its Leaves Overnight

Question From: K. Eisiminger - Waynesburg, Pennsylvania, United States
Q: I bought a male and a female bittersweet......not sure which one is which, but the leaves all fell off of one, and it seems dead. They were both thriving and climbing, it just happened overnight! :( Any ideas?

A: I always look at chemical damage when it comes to sudden leaf loss Karen. Drift is very common when sprayers are used. If you can smell a chemical, you are breathing it and it's hitting plants that are near you. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
