I'm very upset this a.m. it looks like our Pink Dogwood is trying to die,the lower leaves are turning and getting dried out,and also 3 of my Butterfly Bushes are doing the same and some worse. We have had so very much rain here this year that is the only thing I can think of that is different . Please if you have any suggestions let me know. It is odd how we get so attached to these plants after a while. Thanks to all,    Elizabeth

I know that lupines can be very tasty to some critters. 

I think holyhocks grow one year, bloom the next and then the dropped seeds germinate, etc.  They are biennial and need to be planted two years in a row.  The seeds should be allowed to germinate and then the cycle begins again.  To have them every year, you must plant two years to get continuous blooming to begin.  They are much like fox gloves in that regard.

What happens to them? Mildew? Insects?

I have quite a few perennials in my gardens and enjoy them all.Could anyone tell me what may be the reason I can't grow lupine or hollyhocks.I love them both but they don't seem to love me back.Do they have anything in common?Thanks for any advice.

Yvonne - For Own Root DA roses I always order from Chamblee's (also in TX). The prices are great and the roses are good size, well rooted and healthy :)

I use epson salt in Nebraska.   I just sprinkle conservatively around plants when they are a little yellow.
