What is happening with these boxwoods? (pics)
The other 30 or so are fine... just these 2. They are next to eachother. At first I thought it was because I hadn't watered enough early in the season, but on the porch above them are some impatiens in planters. The impatiens ended up with spider mites which I am currently treating. You can see in one of the pictures there is webbing on the boxwoods. Are they infested and maybe this is where they came from? From what I've read, the damage doesn't look like mites... The leaves look fine (no white discoloration) it's just they are dying out on the inside.
I notice grayish garden spiders (the ones that look like wolf spiders) on the webs... so maybe the webbing is from them and not mites. Any opinions?
