The Q&A Archives: Vinca Turning Yellow

Question: I have a large area by my mailbox that I have planted Vinca in. The leaves are turning yellow. The area gets lots of sun, and there has been ample rain. What could be causing this?

Answer: Yellowing foliage is usually a symptom of overly wet soils so check to make sure things are draining properly, especially after a heavy rain. You can feed your vinca to help restore the color and if your soil is alkaline, you can feed with a little iron, as well. Hope this solves the problem!
