Plumbago Plants
Q.

Yellow leaves on cape plumbago.

Zone zone 9 | Anonymous added on June 21, 2018 | Answered

My new cape plumbago was just planted two weeks ago and some of the leaves are turning yellow. I have been watering it an extra once a day (do to a heat wave) and it is on a nightly drip line. Am I giving it too much water? Or is it perhaps adjusting to being planted? It's blooming like crazy since it was planted but it's just the leaves I'm concerned about.

This probably is a combination of overwatering and transplant shock. The drip irrigation is probably sufficient. This article may help
