In about September my acuba japonica seemed to wilt and shrivel and a few of the lower leaves went black. It is still in the same state and I wondered what could have caused this and what I can do to help it improve

Acuba japonica

Reply from Marissa Zoppellini

Is the plant in a sunny, wet or exposed position? This can lead to root rot. If the damage is extensive, it may be a lost cause but you could give it a chance by pruning out the affected branches and if it is not too big, move it to a shaded spot in free-draining soil without too much organic matter in a sheltered position.

Best spot for Aucubas

Reply from Kathy C

Good advice from Marissa as Aucubas are best sited in a dry, shaded site. In fact, they are drought tolerant once established.
