For my birthday last year, I got this viburnum from my wife.
it looked pretty good in the beginningF08E9F17-C335-42B0-B1F0-CB79D0A4B816.jpeg
With some wire. 8B3D86D3-396A-472F-9FE2-149FF7C76368.jpeg
Soon after this it started losing branches.
Drastic measures were taken. I chopped some branches last year, but upon inspection, more branches were dead and I decided to chop further to leave a single trunk and one flowing line. 36B1AD20-8823-4AC2-82BD-E50D6AB7AFEC.jpeg0A679DB6-9E09-459D-83E9-67FC70D2F99F.jpegAfter an hour of combing out the roots and revealing more trunk, I got it potted up.178F3D0B-3833-44BF-BA8A-33A5ACA9A6DB.jpeg
Yes, I will be very surprised if it makes it. However, most of the live root was spared. Here’s hoping. 7CEDC4F4-55E3-4293-B12A-2AFAF1635F48.jpeg

Hope the poor thing survives. It was a beautiful and healthy plant when you got it.

Yes, it was.
With some luck and care, I feel it will be very interesting in the future.
When repotting, I found a lot of rot around the base and roots.
I’m Hoping the new substrate will help. IDK, may have added insult to injury though. 🤞

Major problem of reverse taper solved. The hard way. Best wishes for survival☺️.
