my wisteria (10 years old) flowered beautifully this year - again. It seemed to be doing really well - it's in a bed with roses and mixed plants. It was looking good on Monday - i didn't really look last night, but when I went in to the garden this morning (Wednesday) the leaves are shrivelled up. what on earth is happening to my beloved plant.

hi
i hate to say it but i think it is dying, the symptons sound like a form of Phytophthora which basically attachs the roots of the plant and can kill it totally within days, once saw a 100ft cedar in prefect health die within a week from it, in the way basically you discribe
i hope it helps and sorry for the bad news

what about all the other plants round about it? I've got 3 roses, several clematis, currant bushes and tree peonies - do you know if I'm likely to lose them?
