gaura -Perky Pinks struggling
I planted several gauras of the variety Perky Pink in the late spring. This was in some beds in the common area of my neighborhood owned by the HOA. The other plants in this bed (trailing rosemary, Rainbow Knock-Out roses, Mexican feather grass, sun drops) are doing well. But, the gauras are struggling. We had a lot of rain early on, and they seemed to be fine. Since the rain has slowed significantly now, we have been hand watering occasionally to supplement the 3x a week sprinklers. The leaves look mottled and dry, almost as if something is eating it. But, I don't know of any pest that likes this plant. I do think that they got a bit stressed going from too much rain to suddenly pretty dry. But, I'm not sure if they can be saved. They're still alive, but look awful. Any thoughts? Thanks.
