What is causing my boxwoods to look like this?
This might be the most ridiculous question ever asked on Hometalk. My formerly black thumb is now more of a yellowish-brown color, meaning that I'm slowly learning about plants and not killing every one I get my hands on. We have a row of 3 boxwoods that were planted about 4 years ago. This spring they've had a ton of new growth but we've gotten tons of rain. Everytime it rains, they look like the pictures below. My question is why?? Do we need to cut them back or is something else going on that we need to be more concerned with? I am worried that their shape will be permanently affected if it hasn't already been. Any help you can provide would be fantastic... thanks!
