I believe this a Daphene shrub. It is about 3 years old and all of a sudden appeared to be dying. It is now trying to put out again but I have read that these plants need to be replaced about every 3 years. Any suggestions on care?

    At the root of the plant there are shoots that if you will wiggle them they will come loose and have roots on them for new plant..I pulled 2 this week but I want to know when I should take the babies? I’ve taken 6 or more in the past but as a MG I want to be able to give the correct info to other people. Thanks, Merle

    I don’t know what’s the cause of your sick plant. But this link on from the Guru himself might help you further. Best wishes!

    Daphnes are naturally fickle plants. Usually they will last six to seven years, dying after they put out the best flower show yet. It’s just how they are. They do need some shade, but aren’t water greedy, so too much sun could be your issue with a faster dying plant. If you want a hardier winter bloomer with great fragrance, consider an Edgeworthia chrysantha, a Daphne relative that will tolerate virtually all conditions and live much longer (and even take vicious pruning).
