Blackberry plant fading leaves

Zone Orangeburg, sc. zone | Digichic55 added on August 29, 2018 | Answered

Our blackberry plant is young. Although supposedly an upright variety it has long runners. Some of the leaves seem to be dying. We have kept it watered, but a month ago we had a great deal of rain here in South Carolina. I think it could be rust, but unsure. The leaves eventually fall off. It is mainly on the more mature parts.
