Plant leaves turning rusty yellow

containerfreak42July 14, 2012

Hi guys new to this forum, I planted 4 bulbs in a large pot and they have grown like crazy, but some of the leaves are beginning to turn colors.. Is it time in my zone for them to start going dormant or is something else happening??

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

It's natural for some of the outer leaves to turn yellow and die as new ones grow, but not the inner leaves at this time of the year..they should continue to grow for several more months in your zone I should think...

Do you have a picture that you could post of your plant showing the yellowing leaves, that might help with a proper diagnosis...might they be sunburned?
