Leaf Problems

I have an old pieris forest flame that I have recently repotted at the beginning of summer. Just lately the leaves are going pale and tips look like they have been burnt and it gradually spreads up the leaf. This is only happening on the new leaves – old leaves are ok.

This is either a water or nutrient issue. Give it some additional water and add some balanced fertilizer.

Pieris Plant

It has been very cold overnight, and my small pieris plant is dropping all its leaves like a rhododendron. Is this normal? Thanks.


Do you have a photo of the plant? How cold did it get? Pieris japonica is generally cold tolerant if sufficiently mulched. The upper foliage may suffer a bit in a severe frost, but it would still be alive.
