Pyracantha

Anonymous added on July 18, 2011 | Answered

We have a 10-yr old pyracantha (screen hedge). It has always been vigorous with loads of flowers and berries. This year it suffered massive leaf drop, leaves yellowing before drop. There is some regrowth, but struggling with few flowers. All the leaves are very pale green and many even have cream/white colored edges and tips. All the leaves are curled inwards. There is no sign of any infestation. Two other pyracanthas alongside this ailing one have no problems at all! I am at a loss as to what is going on.
