Good Morning,

I recently planted three blueberry bushes this spring. Before I planted them, I had my soil pH tested and it came back at 6.4 so I bought a granular acidifier. I planted all three bushes and they are currently not doing great. One is doing fairly well but the other two have changed colors to a red and orange leaf. We had a very wet spring (9 more inches of rain than normal) and I assumed the heavy amounts of water were raising the pH but now I am unsure of what is causing it. I was told to apply a fungicide but I don't know if that's the reason. Any help would be appreciated. Pictures are attached. Thank you!
