wilting onondaga viburnum

One of the stars of my back garden is an onondaga viburnum I've had for ten years. This year it has leaves and flower buds, but it looks like it's wilting - even though it's been watered. Nothing else around it is like this, not even a Wentworth viburnum just beside. What could be the trouble? I am afraid it might be on the way to dying!

cant help you much w/o a picture...

could it simply be leafing out so lushly .. that it looks wilted??

if so.. it ought to get its act together in a week or two ..

Viburnum are susceptible to Verticillium wilt. Could it be that? As Ken notes, easier if we see a photo.

thanks! I have a couple of photos, but cannot find any info on how to upload them here - though i use flickr and facebook. maybe i should post them on flickr.

I saw some posts about verticulum wilt, but the leaves on my onondaga are fine, though smaller than usual. no brown spots or anything....

Could you tell me how to upload photos here?

Thanks!

Make that verticillim. And I looked at the site posted by formandfoliage - thanks. But it doesn't seem like that, and it isn't really the season. I hope not - most of my shrubs are on the susceptible list!

It has been very warm and dry lately, but I had already deeply watered, and just did again. Anyway, I'll post photos when I find out how.

This trilobum wentworth is right next to the onondaga, and it is not droopy in the least!

Agree does not look like Verticillium. Looks fine to me from the shot that you have. Can we see a photo of the entire bush? Are the stems turgid?

So far so good, the onondaga is not so droopy. The flowers are held upright as they should be. Thanks for the encouragement!
