    Problems of the Forest Flame


    Susceptible to dieback, desiccation and scorch in harsh winters, particularly when plants have not been properly sited in a location protected from wind. Lace bugs can do considerable damage to foliage, particularly in the Eastern U.S. Phytophthora (crown/root rot), nematodes, mites, scale and leaf spots are also occasional problems.


    Move your plant and keep it out of the wind.
