I have a Golden Embers Escallonia but it has developed black spots on the leaves (like rose black spot) It is has young new growth so I am guessing that is good. Do you think it might have got damaged during winter? If so, will it bounce back? What should I do ? T.I.A
Unfortunately, there is not much you can do apart from promptly removing any dead and diseased leaves lying around the base of your shrub. Try to lay a new thick layer of mulch each year to keep the shrub growing well.
