No serious disease or insect problems have been observed on Seven Son Flower, but it can be attacked by Verticillium Wilt, a fungal pathogen that also damages Maples, Ash, Eastern Redbud, and Smokebush. If excessive dieback is observed, contact an arborist to develop a management strategy. Protection from winter animal browse may be necessary if noticed on your plant. Use a vinyl wrap or tree guard to protect the trunk.
