Planted in June and seemed to be thriving, having put on 15 - 20cm new growth. Suddenly began to wilt. Soil is moist, not waterlogged and plant is in semi shade protected from harsh winds. Have pruned it hard back but can see no signs of Verticillium wilt at the cut or under the bark. I have the Black Lace variety as well within 1m of this plant and it is still thriving. What could be the problem?

Hi, Neil,
My first thought is since it is so newly planted, check to make sure it is firmly in the ground. Any air pockets/space around the roots could make problems. Other thought is are you in any area that has been getting higher than normal rainfall?
