winter damage to euyonimus

theosof0April 18, 2014

The bitter cold this winter killed the leaves on my potted variegated euyonimus. The shrub is recovering well- lots of new growth. Should I pick off the dead leaves or let it be?

when the heat of summer hits... they will fall off ..

whether you have anything better to do.. rather than wait.. is up to you ...

of course.. being potted.. you could move it to your favorite chair.. and with adult fortification.. have a grand old time pickin ...

but if they are still holding on tight.. i would go ripping them off.. and somehow leaving scars ...

i suppose you clean your house also ???? .. lol ... and now its time to clean the bushes????

rock on .... whatever you decide.. have fun doing it..
