Parts of my silver mist plants are starting to look a little shriveled. Should I clip them off? Will they grow back? Any idea of cause? It's been cool and rainy. Or should I try a fungicide of some kind?
Thank you so much for any input!

Gayla, are they planted in the border or pots? In certain parts of the country there has been drought conditions, have you watered enough and regularly?
I would be tempted to remove the crispy foliage and adopt a better watering regime if I found no trace of bugs. Look inside the curled leaves for signs.
Hope this helps.

Thank you so much for your response! They're planted in pots, but I think they've have had too much moisture, if anything. Maybe "shriveled" isn't the right term; they're not drying up and getting crispy, just limp and sick looking. I'm going to go with your advice, trim the foliage back and check for bugs.
