Hello! I have lots of questions... I'm new to gardening...

I have several lillies planted... one got ate completely by a deer (hopefully it will come back next year) but one is turning yellow??? Why?? I also have one that was partially ate by a rabbit... what can I do to help it survive?

My Azalea is spotted white and turning brown? Spider mites? Azalea dust? How to treat?

My yellow rose bush is funny shaped and leaves are brown and ugly looking? Disease?

I have a pink flowering plant in front of the rose bush with white on the leaves and it doesn't flower any more Sad Any thoughts on why?

The other plants I can't identify, so any help would be appreciated!!!

I bought this rose RX stuff and have been spraying once a week but I can't tell if things are getting better. Suggestions on stuff to use?

Any newbie advice is greatly appreciated! I'm trying to learn all I can! Thanks :)

Welcome to NGA, WannaBeGardener2020. You may want to consider using individual posts for individual plants. Regarding these two only, can you please post pictures to help me see what you are noticing? It usually helps to see the bush in one picture; then close ups of affected leaves; and even more of a close up again if you have a dot or spot causing problems:

"My Azalea is spotted white and turning brown? Spider mites? Azalea dust? How to treat?

My yellow rose bush is funny shaped and leaves are brown and ugly looking? Disease?"

Other info that may be useful: are these newly planted this year? Where are you seeing the spotted white in the azalea? I can think of spots that might happen in the branches, leaves and flower (I assume you do not have flowers now although some rebloomers might be blooming now somewhere). regarding the rose, make sure your picture shows what this unusual, "funny shape" is. Because we are in the summer, it would help to know exactly how much water the rose gets. How often, how many gallons, what kind of soil it is planted on, for example.

Thanks in advance, Luis

Welcome!

It IS an overwhelming number of questions. I saw it when it went up but skipped because I don't have all the answers. But, here is my best shot before you have to relist everything.... (Relisting is still a good idea for every question you still don't have an answer to in this case, I think.)

Photo 1 - I know nothing about treating roses. Typically it is better to figure out the category of problem the plant faces though before just treating it wholesale. (Is it fungus, or mites, or....) Post pictures.

Photo 2 - white flower - dianthus I think.

Photo 3 – possibly a Shasta daisy? Do you remember what the flowers looked like?

Photo 4 – no idea, did it bloom?

Photo 5 - a kalenchoe, I think.

Photos 6 and 8 - your lilies are fine, after they bloom they spend a little time storing energy to bloom next season and die back. They are now entering the die back stage.

Photo 7 - azalea is either sunburnt or has spidermites. Can you see webs or are the back of the leaves gritty feeling?

Photo 8 – The spots look like some sort of burn. Have you sprayed any chemicals in that area recently?

Hi Wannabegardener2020, Welcome! to garden.org and the fun, rewarding and ... sometimes challenges of gardening! Green Grin!


Photo #2 the white flower reminds me of Dianthus

Photo #3 ??
Photo #4 ??
Photo #5 reminds me of Showy Stonecrop (Hylotelephium spectabile)


Sedum (Hylotelephium spectabile 'Herbstfreude')




Photo #6 I don't know what can be done to keep rabbits, deer, etc. from eating your plants other than putting a net over them. Shrug!
Photo #7 The yellowing leaves of your lily may be a watering issue, too much, too little?
Photo #8 I don't know what plant it is but I see a couple of holes in the leaves which might possibly be some type of insect damage. The white spots look to me like something has splashed onto the plant. Has anyone sprayed anything in that area lately?

I don't see a rose bush in any of your photos so I'm not sure which plant you are asking about no longer flowering.

4 is a sedum
5 is an Asiatic daylily.
7 why yellow? is an Asiatic daylily.
Looks like your azalea was hit with a spray of some kind.

Thank you everyone! I am so appreciative of all the help :)

Next time I definitely will post one question at a time.

I am attaching some more pictures of the rose bush and the azalea. The azalea is new this year and hasn't bloomed at all. I have noticed some webbing. The rose bush has been there for awhile and a few of the sprouts bloom but some never do. I guess the "funny shape" is instead of a bush it's like 6-8 single branches that are 5 feet tall all sticking in different directions.

I haven't sprayed anything other than the Rose RX stuff but the spots and stuff were there first. I was hoping it was spider mites or something and the Rose RX stuff would take care of it. I haven't seen a change.

It's hot here right now... 80s-100s. It rains most afternoons but I try to water with the hose to keep the soil moist. As a new gardener I definitely struggle with the watering thing, I feel like it's too much and then not enough. I have no idea about the soil. It was a garden bed before I got here and I have added some garden soil when I added some of the new plants this year (the azalea, lilies, day lilies, and a few others are new this year). The rose bush and the plants I can't identify were there before me.

Thanks again for all the help Smiling this site has been super helpful thus far!

@BigBill, there is no such thing as an Asiatic daylily, you must mean an Asiatic lily (lilium). That one didn't need an ID actually, just wanted to know about rabbits eating it. nodding

Azalea: Has or had lace bugs. You're stuck with the "stippled" appearance until the leaves are replaced. If you'd like more information, there is a lot on the Internet. Here's a link to NC State Extension..... https://content.ces.ncsu.edu/l...

A systemic insecticide labeled for lace bug would resolve the problem (e.g., Orthene). Of course, follow the label instructions.

Rose: May have a touch of black spot but Image 14, counting all images from the very top, looks weird to me. I am not sure what could produce that look.
