A: Looks to me like your plant has a bad case of aphids. I would take a cutting sealed in a plastic baggie to an independent garden center or nursery for an accurate ID and control. Captain Jack's Dead Bug Brew by Bonide would be a possible choice. Do follow the directions carefully. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
