They’re having a plant clinic over at Garden Rant, and I decided to submit the perplexing, premature leaf drop my ‘Autumn Brilliance’ Juneberry exhibits every year. The leaf drop was addressed in today’s clinic, but since they didn’t show all the images, I thought I’d share them here.So much for autumn brilliance, huh? Though I will concede that each leaf is brilliant before it falls, most of them are long gone before autumn. Sigh. The native Juneberries seem to prefer the edge of the field, where they have a western exposure, although there are some growing in full sun. I will try to remember to check the foliage of the wildlings as the season progresses, to see if they are all similarly afflicted.
What’s Wrong With My Juneberry?
If the garden was a secret and we could get into it we could watch the things grow bigger every day, and see how many roses are alive. Don't you see? Oh, don't you see how much nicer it would be if it was a secret?
