Yellowing leaves on our red bud tree

Zone Portland, OR | Anonymous added on August 26, 2018 | Answered

It's been a hot summer but we have kept our redbud well watered. We're at the end of August and we are noticing some leaves on our red bud yellowing and dropping off. Are we watering it too much? Too little? Should we feed it more?...if so what? Or is this normal for a redbud and no need to worry?? Thanks! Mary Anne

Redbuds are tolerant of many conditions. These resilient trees will thrive almost anywhere, but in drier climates, it often needs as much water as you can give it. If you are concerned with its nutrient intake, you may feed with a higher nitrogen content fertilizer, as yellowing leaves is often a symptom of nitrogen deficiency. It is also helpful to add dolomitic lime to the area to keep the soil pH where it should be.
