Thanks for the advise on the hibiscus and the white leaf problem.  Ours has developed the same after being inside all winter and just being introduced out doors.  The advise is great - thanks

This is what happened to my hibiscus tri-color tree.  I brought it inside for the winter n worried than because it lost a lot of leaves that turned yellow than. It finally adjusted n stopped losing them.  It was recently looking good with a lot of new fresh leaves.  I live in Maryland n thought it was warm enough to set it outside again on my deck knowing they were calling for rain that week.  It rained 3 days in a row.  The second day I went out to check on it n almost all my leaves had turned a silvery white color.  I know the day had gotten warm, but didn't' think it was warm enough to burn the leaves.  I figured it was that or too much water.  I pulled off most of the leaves n sure hope it comes back, it was so pretty last year!  I had a guarantee on it for a year, but I think the year is up just when this happened.

What`s growing in your garden? Delphiniums, Painted Daisies, Roses, Peonies, Lilacs, Tuberoses, Parrot Tulips and Double Daffodils -- I`ve never met a perennial I didn`t like, but I have a weakness for flowers with fragrance. Here in Zone 7, on the North Shore of Long Island, New York, I can`t think of a better way to spend a summer morning. I'm educated in this field, but even better, I am genetically qualified: Part English gardener ancestry, part Irish potato farmer. I have degrees in related fields and a lifetime of hands-in-the-dirt experience. Not convinced? I have a daughter named Holly, a dog named Daisy, a bird named Buttercup, and a house on Garden Street. Still working on the license plate.
