Try giving it a drink of Epsom Salt. One tablespoon to a gallon of lukewarm water, but you won't need a gallon for just one plant.

I have applied some Epson salt twice now , all the new growth looks good . The yellowish leaves seem to have stayed the same.

Thanks for the suggestion Pearl

I have used Epson salt on roses and my peppers but just never thought it may be good for so much more Thumbs up

Glad your new growth looks good. I did use it on one Jackmanii that had some yellow leaves but forgot to check and see what happened. Next in the arsenal is Ironite. I hope to use it tomorrow on a sickly looking Guernsey Cream.

I am so sorry I do not know
It has been in my garden 8+ years and was most likely a rescue with no tag *Blush* I have a tendency to do that kind of thing.

It has a nice deep color and is rather a small flower 3-31/2 ''
Blooms a bit later than most of my others . They have been blooming for a week now and this one still only has buds. But that may be to placement , It is in a part shade bed.

I am having some wilt on a few of mine Arlene. If I remember correctly, I cut all the wilt off and let it regrow?

Yes. You can treat it with an anti-fungal powder but I just cut them back hard, give them some Epsom Salt (1 tbsp. to a gallon of lukewarm water - but you won't need a gallon for one plant), and hope for the best. Most recover. I can't recall any that never recovered.

gardengus said:Thumb of 2016just offering an opinion based on my plant but I wouldn't worry about yellowing leaves. I've had mine blooming for 7 or 8 years now and every year it gets larger and offers more show. The lower leaves tend to get big and turn yellow and the upper leaves stay dark green just before and during bloom. <br>

I did try the Epson salts on my bed looking one a few weeks ago. Not it is dead and I think it could be wilt. Just all dried up and black. Wonder if the white is a pre-wilt sign? NOt blaming the Epson salts at all.
