I have had this blue lacecap hydrangea for about 6 years or so. A few years ago a small branch broke off and I placed it in soil in my "baby nursery garden" under the deck stairs in the shade. Two summers ago I planted it out in a garden that gets morning sun - same as the momma. But this year the leaves are very yellow - what is causing that? A few leaves on the momma are slightly yellow too, and it's in a different garden.

lack of nutrients

yellowing is caused by 3 deficiencies:
1. iron
2. magnesium
3. nitrogen

the nutrients in the soil have probably been depleted & you need to fertilize

I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!

Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have
done this have entertained angels without realizing it.
