Yellow Holly Leaves

Anonymous added on January 2, 2014 | Answered

We recently purchased a "Liberty" holly. Half of the plant's leaves are yellow, the rest are vibrant green. We have other hollies that have been doing well. We have many pine trees, so we think the soil is acidic. The two reasons: drainage, iron hasn't affected the others. We live in eastern North Carolina. All of our plants are important too, but this one is especially so. Any advice you can give will be appreciated. Thank you.

If this is a recently planted bush, then I would say that it is suffering from transplant shock. This article will help you with dealing with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/learn-how-to-avoid-and-repair-transplant-shock-in-plants.htm
