Q.Holly Bushes Losing Leaves in the Summer

Anonymous added on August 24, 2011 | Answered

I have five very large holly bushes, 7 to 8 feet tall. One of them is losing an inordinate amount of leaves–this has occured in the current summer months. Can you explain this situation–is the plant diseased? Can it affect my other holly bushes? What should I do?

This usually indicates that the plants are stressed. How hot has it been? With much of the country suffering from severe heat, this would certainly be a contributing factor. Are there any other symptoms (i.e. leaf yellowing or browning, etc.)? Have you inspected for pests? Let us know and we can be of more help.
