My poor little Purple Sandcherry, I love that thing. I've had it for years in my front garden, lovingly tended it, pruned it, fertilized it, everything short of sacrificing a goat to it. In return it's given me pretty fragrant flowers in the spring and beautiful red foliage through to Fall. *sigh*. Don't know what happened to it, no obvious signs of disease or pests, the bushes surrounding it are thriving. A fairly substantial branch broke off over the winter, but it leafed up ok and flowered well this spring. Suddenly, almost overnight, it just started sort of wilting. I was hoping to just prune back the affected branches, but it looks like the whole thing's circling the drain.

*sigh*, RIP my dear Purple Sandcherry.

Maybe try sacrificing the goat to it.

Sorry, I had to. Sorry you are losing your favorite plant.

I shouldn't laugh but that was funny bullet.

If the goat thing doesn't work UM, ask yorkie what you might be able to do to save it.

Seriously? Just sprinkle it around the soil nearby?

Bullet, didn't want to get myself arrested so I'll have to sacrifice some canned ham instead.

Oh sorry about your pretty plant. I have no idea what to suggest. Yorkie can you please explain the epsom salt, is it for mites or mold or...? Do you put it on the ground around it?

Just sprinkle it around the tree line and a bit near the trunk,it helps to neutralize the soil
