I planted a sand cherry bush in front of the chimney chase on the sunny side of the house. It looks so pretty with its purple leaves and bunches of pink flowers in early spring. It's flanked by a series of burning bushes that turn a brilliant red in the fall.
I looked out the window the other afternoon and couldn't believe my eyes.
It was completely covered in purple leaves the last time I saw it.
Those TENT WORMS- hundreds of the devoured my beautiful bush, in only a day!
I killed them all.
There's hope. In just a few days out shot new leaves.
Hopefully it will fully recover and look like this sample photo.
