I have three of these shrubs. One a standard 2 are low growing. In Scotland we had a very cold winter. Their leaves are all brown and when you touch those leaves they fall apart. There are signs of green leaves. Are these plants dead or past it.
Lots of ceanothus have struggled with this last winter.
dead or dying. I thought mine had survived but lost its flower buds but the leaves are getting browner by the day
I posted the same (with some pics) a few weeks back
I have been pleasantly surprised to see quite a lot of new leaf growth on even the most damaged limbs. They (x3) very nearly got the chop but glad to say it looks like patience (not a normal trait of mine) has / will be rewarded.
My plant, which is 'Gloire de Versailles' and is sometimes deciduous, defoliated a few weeks back, but is in full leaf again. No dieback, except by pruning..
