Q.What Is Wrong With My Japonica?

Zone England | Anonymous added on May 14, 2021 | Answered

I have had this plant in a pot for 2 years. I have planted it in the garden now. It is just straight up and down and not bushing out. There is new growth at the bottom and 1 bit branching off from the trunk. It is 4 feet high. The leaves in the middle are hanging and yellow.Thanks
