Hi, new to this community, very happy to join. I have two Miss Molly butterfly bushes that after initially looking spectacular have started to look very stressed. One I've had for a few years without incident, the other was planted last fall. New growth on both is misshappen and yellowing. They are both planted in well drained soil and we've had a good spate of periodic spring rains, so I don't think it is a over/under watering issue. I suspect fungus, but seems like there are many options as to why this could be happening. Grateful for any diagnostic info or potential treatment.

Powdery Mildew is pretty common when the weather is cool and the plant leaves stay wet for long periods. Look for a fungicide that treats powdery mildew. Hot dry weather will also help.
