Live in Dallas, my varigated ivy is about 15 years old.  Growing around a tree trunk.  Did very well for all these years.  Suddenly turned brown top to bottom (about 40/50 feet).

have not used any fertilizers. I am heartbroken about this....this plant was the envy of the area.   

What can I do to revive this plant.?  The tree it is growing on is doing well.

please help ASAP.  Thank you

The tree is most important.  Ivy is not good to grow around trees.  It can kill a tree and pull it down.  The IVY should be removed to save the tree down the road.  Bag it and trash it please do not mulch it.  Ivy can damage bricks on your house and take a barn down when it is left to grow.
