Re: Hib Help? Dave..are you there?

Hi Ceres

That sounds like tip die-off. When you lose your leaves from the top down look at the wood. Is it discolored or spongy? It's a fungus and you need to cut that off low enough until you get green wood. I get that in the winter when we have the majority of the rain and it's cool. For me it's the same fungus as what you might find in a refrigerator...botritis. (sp) The sooner you cut that off and can keep the newly cut ends from staying wet the better off you will be. It can eventually kill off your plant.

David, I need this infor also. I lost my leaves on my H std this spring
after taking it outdoors and now I have foliage on the trunk and new at the soil
line but none on the top branches. Guess I need to cut the top off?
