powdery mildew-should i return plant?
I bought a forever and ever red sensation at lowes a few weeks ago. It looked healthy, but had a residueon the leaves. I know nothing about powdery mildew, so I just thought it was some sort of residue from a pesticide or something...
as time progressed, I researched a bit more and am sure the plant has powdery mildew. It looks otherwise healthy, although I am now seeing some dead leaves.
I am treating it with neem oil--its an immature plant, so I am hoping that i can just cure this small outbreak and that it will be healthy next year.
Ripping it up and returning it is just a pain at this point. Can a hydrangea recover???
