help with new leaves on my Wrightia antidysenterica being yellow

luvpatch2February 20, 2012

Hi! I purchased a wonderful shrub called wrightia antidysenterica last summer. It has beautiful white blooms. After having the plant in a large pot for about a month the new growth of emerging leaves would be light yellow in color. The old leaves stayed green but all new growth was light yellow. I fertilized with microlife and also tried adding iron. Does anyone know causing this? This is a shrub that drops its leaves in the winter and am hoping the new growth this year does not do this?

I am not familiar with this plant. Below is what info I found on it.

It is a tropical. Depending where you are in zone 9, it might survive.
