Yellowing lilac. Any ideas whats going on here? Thanks.




These plants need full sun to begin with and rich well drained soil. Something tells me that it is getting neither and is giving up.

has it been heat/dry stressed? if yes it could be going into autumn leaf/leaf drop mode.

I'm told they do best in a slightly alkaline soil so a dressing of lime might help if you think that could be a reason. Also they don't like to be crowded in ,which is what happened to mine, hence it's ugly shape, which Bamboo has just advised me on. (See my post)
