Dying shrub

I wonder if anyone has come across this or any advice. One of my customers has what I think is a Japanese spindle.it has been doing very well but since my last visit 2 weeks ago half of it appears to have died (see photos) some of the bottom of the plant is still ok and the back near a wall is still green. 

Any ideas or advice would be appreciated as never seen this before.

  • its part of the euonymus family and do not suffer mutch from desease it might be that it has been that dry and hot at the same time

  • I've had several instances of this type of 'partial death' in Yorkshire.  Not as serious as your picture, my cases had a few/several branches just dying back.  I assumed it was wind burn and cut back the dead stems.  Not pretty but all plants survived and just needed pruning back to regain shape.

  • I guess it's the prolonged, hot dry weather we have had recently. I would cut it back to green shoots, apply some feed to the base and water deeply. If possible put some garden compost  around the base.
