Troubles with my viburnum davidii

Q: My Viburnum is developing brown edges on the leaves. Additionally, some of the smaller stems are turning brown and dying. Can you tell me what I can do to save this plant? It is about five-years-old.

Thanks for your help.

Since I don’t have as much information as I’d like, I am going to take an educated guess.

“Evergreen Viburnum” (Viburnum davidii) is considered marginally winter-hardy here on the West Coast. Given the nature of this past winter, I believe one could be looking at winter damage. This may be more evident if the plant is in more exposed area (e.g. sunnier or windy location).

Cut back or remove damage material and your plant should improve in the summer weather,especially with a bit of mulching, fertilizing and watering.
