|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.
