Leaf tips turn yellow, then brown and dry, contrasting sharply with the healthy green foliage. Damage is most severe for plants growing in shady areas. When a yellow leaf is torn open, a small 1/5 inch), greenish caterpillar with a dark head may be found inside. Gray or brownish moths with a 1/3 inch wingspread may be seen flying around the plant in spring.
Apply an insecticide labeled for these pests, following label directions. Trim and destroy infested leaves in fall and spring.
