See how the new growth is yellowing? Could this be sunburn? (not that we’ve had much sun). But this is northwest of where I had those trees removed after Sandy. And I can’t think what else it could be. It’s was a large plant when I moved here over fifteen years ago and has thrived on neglect. It also has more blossoms than ever, it didn’t blossom for many years because of too much shade. Which suggests it’s noticed a difference.
And if it’s sunburn, will it acclimate?
