: I have a problem with a few of my dropmore scarlet honeysuckles, they seem to be dying and have irregular shaped black splotches on the leaves. I'm not sure if this is some sort of fungus or what, but if anyone has had any experience with this or can help me I would appreciate it.

: Thanks

Hi Matt,
Sounds like black spot. I have had a problem from time to time with my native honeysuckles getting black at the tips of the stems. You could use a fungicide for black spot, clean up any dropped leaves, dip your pruning shears into one part bleach and nine parts water between each cut and don't water the leaves when you water, especially in the evening.

Good luck,
