Nutrient and mineral excesses of Euonymus spp

Disease Information

Nutrient and mineral excesses

Nutrients, salts, and pesticides can be toxic to plants if present in excess amounts or if applied incorrectly. Excess concentrations of one nutrient can reduce the availability of other nutrients.  Toxicity symptoms include leaf tip dieback, marginal leaf chlorosis, necrosis (or burn), branch dieback, and pest problems.


Avoid nutrient disorders by preventing root disease development, providing good drainage, and using good practices during fertilization and irrigation. Make sure that herbicides don`t drift over into your landscape plants.
