Q.Dropping Rose of Sharon leaves
The leaves are drooping, yellowing, and dropping. I’m worried the plant is to die!
– Bought 1 month ago from Lowes
– Repotted it and trimmed off 1/3 of the little branches
– It lives on our patio and gets 4-6 hours of sunlight per day
– I water it whenever the soil dries up more than 2″ below the surface.
