Question
ALL WINTER, BOXWOODCOLOR WAS PRETTY GREEN.  NOW 2 WEEKS LATER AND WE ARE GETTING WARMER, I AM GETTING LOTS OF YELLOW TURNING BROWN LEAVES. I WILL BE PRUNINING SOON, BUT THAT WON'T REMOVE ALL AREAS.  THANKS FOR YOUR HELP

Answer
Joyce:

Boxwwod will sometimes discolor during cold temps.  Can you send a photo of this shrub? Be sure it is in focus before you submit.  Please include a photo of the entire shrub.

Do you have other boxwoods and are they affected in the same way? When was the shrub planted?

Thanks
Steve
