  • most of the time mine always turn yellow..usually if i move them to a new location..its common for that to happen and it could have alot to do with the time of yr..i move mine in the spring..be sure you water it well and put some saw dust around the base of the bush..it will probably be wilted and ugly for quite some time and will probably not bloom until sometime next yr..

  • Not enough water, too much water, lack of certain nutrients like nitrogen, or an overabundance of certain nutrients. Lots of things can do that.

  • get a PH test at your local plant store, they are cheap too
    add soil to the tubes some chemicals, it will change colors then will tell you the PH!
    may have to get certain soil depending on if it's too acidic or not acidic enough
    be careful to get the right ingredients in the soil, they are all different
