New Rose of Sharon, leaves look sad/yellow/falling off...
A few weeks ago we planted a new ROS Minerva in between two mature Hydrangeas. The leaves of the ROS started to get yellowish and would fall off about a week after planting it. I read that it could be related to over watering. We noticed that one of our sprinkler heads might be watering it too much; so we are now shutting the sprinkler system off if rain is in the forecast.
Just recently, we decided to transplant our Minerva to a different area. It seems to be doing a little better now.
We really wanted a ROS in the previous area in between the Hydrangeas as it will provide privacy for us. So we found a great looking/taller White Chiffon that we planted in the same spot.. making sure to watch the over watering. It started off looking great however it seems to be having the same issues as the Minerva ROS.
What is the problem? Could it be the spot? (In between two mature Hydrangeas?) We also have a Blue Satin ROS close to that same area (same soil etc) that is doing very very well.
Thank you for any help you can provide!!!
