yellow leaves

bagsmom(7)April 18, 2010

Hey all! Several weeks ago, I planted some creeping gardenia. They are in the proper sun. I've been keeping them watered since they are newly planted -- but I don't think watering excessively.

Why do you suppose the leaves are getting yellow and weird looking? Do they need some fertilizer? I amended the soil when I planted, so I can't imagine there is a problem with the dirt.

Any ideas? Did I buy a finicky plant? They were super cheap, so if they don't make it, I'm not out much.

All the leaves or just some of them? Gardenias lose some leaves come spring this way.

I guess it is just some of them, but it has come on slowly, with a few leaves, then more. Now it is quite a few. They were lovely when I planted them.

I have some new August Beauty gardenia shrubs I got at the same time. They look great -- lots of new growth and no weird yellowing. This is only happening to the creeping variety.

Now that I think of it, I have one still in the pot (didn't get them all planted.) It is NOT yellowing. Hmmmmmmm. What does that mean?

I have the same problem 2 are doing great, I can see the new growth and they look very healthy. I have 2 others that I plan on moving and hope they do better in their new area. They are all the creeping gardenia.

I got mine at Pike's on sale. I wonder if there was a reason they were so cheap!
