oldhamii in palm springs
I'm so pleased to find this site. I hope someone can help.
I live in Palm Springs, CA.
In February I planted 12 24" boxes of oldhamii. They are grown in costal San Diego so needless to say it's been a shock for them.
I got a mite infestation early on. Thank god for the internet...the landscapers and gardeners havenÂt a clue. I have that under control but have a new problem.
The leaves go from looking deep lush green to this: parts of the leaves turn brown as though being cooked....then perfectly happy green leaves start turning an orangish red color then start defoliating at an alarming pace.
When leaves start turning brown I assume this means not enough water, keep in mind it's still over 90% here.
Is it possible this whole problem is really over watering?
I just found this site. I'll see if picture posting is available and post a few as this problem is in full swing as I type.
I so appreciate any help.
