The Q&A Archives: Yellow leaves - Rose of Sharon.

Question: Within the last few days I have noticed the leaves on my Rose Of Sharon turning yellow. It's on the N W corner of the house, get's watered on a regular basis. Please advise.

Answer: Few things bother rose of sharon. Consistent soil moisture is important and so is good air circulation. It might be that it is heat stressed or there may be a fungal disease affecting your plant. Inspect the leaves for signs of spots or fungal spores. You might want to take a sample of the affected leaves to your cooperative extension office or well staffed nursery for help in identifying disease pathogens. Hope the symptoms are just heat stress!
