Ilex x meserveae 'Blue Prince'

France, France Fr

2 weeks ago i planted a Ilex x meserveae 'Blue Prince' and some leaves are drooping i think it's the wind but can anyone tell me if i right or not



Hello Alexandre - I do hope there are plenty of "Blue Princesses" around this Prince in order to get the reward of those showy berries ...
The Ilex are a bit fussy when being replanted I found, each has their own temperament. I do assume your plant is in part shade? Or in the sun. If you live in the South of France or where the climate is similar to the Med. I would suggest rather to give it only morning sun or very late evening sun. In the cooler northern parts sun is also ok.
They do need some more water in the first year and do like acid soil.

There is not much more I can say. Let us know where the leaves are situated, if you find scaley insects or spots ....
How are the tips of your plant? What soil is it? Does it have some shelter? ....
