Q. Plant Turning Brown

I have several euryops bushes that were doing great and now they are slowly turning brown like they didn’t get enough water. I took them to Home Depot, where I bought them, and asked the nurseryman and he said they needed more water, so I have given them lots of water and they look worse. So now I wonder if they had too much water?

Air pockets in the soil could have affected the roots, making it difficult to take up water. Tamping down around the plants will help collapse any air pockets. If the soil is too moist, back off on watering. It may also have a fungus disease, so I would treat the plant with a fungicide.

My Euroyps have stopped flowering as well as my Bougainvillas.   am in zone 8, but we have had some very warm temperatures (triple digits). I water daily for 15 minutes.

Q. Yellow Leaves

I planted a small Euryop in the same place that one had been for 10 years. The old one was looking bad. The new one has been in for about a month and its leaves are turning yellow. Any ideas?

If the previous plant looked bad or died, then it was likely suffering from a disease or other issue. Therefore, it is highly probable that anything planted in the same area could suffer the same demise if left untreated. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/planting-in-old-spaces.htm It could also be from transplant shock, which normally fixes itself once established. I would keep a watch on it. Ensure that it's not too wet. Check for pests, and if need be just to be on the safe side, treat with fungicide - like neem oil.

Q. Can Pine Trees “Infect” a Green Euryops?

Last year we had transplanted a green euryops and it was placed under a type of pine tree. It was doing well until now. I have noticed a type of white “crystallized” substance on the leaves, and so the plant flowers have small blackness (like lots of small bugs) on them, so they will not open fully. Almost like maybe a mold? Could the pine tree dropping sap or such over the winter time hurt the plant and, if I move, can it recover?

The first thing to do is to move your plant - it needs full sun, and growing under the shade of a tree is going to weaken it and leave it open to attack from various bugs and disease. Read this article about bush daisies: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/african-bush-daisy/growing-bush-daisies.htm.
You can take some samples of leaves and flowers to the Extension Service to find out the best treatment for the attackers, also the names of good plants to use beneath the pine. This link will help you locate the nearest service office: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/extension-search/

Q. Euryops flowers not forming

My recently purchased Euryops which I planted in a container, initially bore healthy and prolific blooms. Now, although it has plenty of buds, the inside of each bud is brown and the flowers appear to have died before emerging from the buds. The plant is in full sun, the growing medium is as recommended and this is my first failure after many years of growing Euryops in containers. What have I done wrong?

Container plantings need daily water and even twice a day during heat above 85 degrees F.
Make sure the soil is moist but not soggy.
Root rot could also cause the flowers to not open.

This article will refresh you on the care requirements.
