7 year old Ramona in trouble ~ help!
Hi ~ Since planting in 2004 she has never failed even as a baby ~ she woke up on time per my journal just on 1 side & proceeded to show up some bloom buds. Still just on 1 side ~ then just all of a sudden some leaves turned yellow but never proceeded to brown & dry ~ just some young tips with buds got limp. Those that turned yellow weeks ago are still yellow. Some buds have opened but because of all the rain these past 3 days the blossoms were a bit sad looking.
Ramona is planted at the foot of a *No Parking* post on the curb & for years was a show stopper & often photographed by strangers passing through.
At the end of Apr I got some hardwood mulch to replenish my many beds & the circle where she was got covered heavily ~ a few days later the yellowing happened. Is it possible the mulch sustained a wet feet situation?
Your thoughts please? TIA!
