corkscrew hazel
We have a corkscrew hazel that seems to be dying. The shrub is at least 25 years old.  We've lived in this house for almost 16 years, its been fine until last year. Perhaps one quarter of the shrub is fine the rest looks to be dying. The branches appear to dry right out and any foliage also seems to dry out and then die.Can anyone help?

Re: corkscrew hazel
They are susceptible to fungal problems/rust which turn foliage brown and tires the plant.  It sounds like a little of this is going on, but also keep in mind the plant may be on its way out if it is this old. Fertilize and spray a fungicide inorder to hang on to it for a while longer, when it teeters off, use it to train vines up in it. Perhaps a trumpet vine or hops vine would look interesting as a new focal point? This way you don't have to dig it up.
