Q.Holly Bush Problem

Zone 12047 | Kaasan12047@ gmail.com added on May 11, 2016 | Answered

I have a 20 yr old Holly Bush in front of my house. Starting last fall I noticed leaves turning yellow/brown. I pruned off all the discolored leaves, but they’re back. The bush gets a lot of sun, although it’s on the north facing side and is about 15′ from the road. What should I do?

Yellow leaves on Holly can be watering issues, poor drainage and what I believe your shrub is suffering from is Iron Chlorosis.

A soil test is a great place to start, and you local County Extension Office can help you with this.
