Why are all my westringias dying

4 westringias & 1 varigated all in different garden beds,foliage going brown and withering. Foliage only on tips of each branch, the rest of branch is bare. Have been seasoling them about every three weeks since I noticed.

Hi Jenny,

We have had so much rain as of late. Do you think the drainage may be a factor and the roots of the plants have become too wet. Westringia prefer a well drained soil. Hopefully the soil will dry out and your plants will survive. It will help to apply a seaweed solution. Don't be tempted to prune at this point. Wait until the plants show signs of recovery.
