Leather Leaf Viburnum Branches Are Dying And Have Brown Holes Inside When Cut

Question From: M. Bickley - Fort Worth, Texas, United States
Q: My leather leaf Viburnum has branches that are dying. When I cut them back, they have a brown hole in the branch. If it is a larger limb, the hole is larger. This has been going on for several years now, but is worse this year. I have searched several web sites and have not seen this particular problem. I live in Fort Worth, texas. Thanks for your help.

A: Mile, Take samples and photos to a good independent nursery in your area that sells these shrubs. You could also contact your local extension hort agent. Here's a link to contact a horticulturist at Texas A and M.
