How to revive silver princess with leaf discolouration?





I planted 2 silver princesses in our front yard last spring. One has taken off while the other hasn’t done much at all and has different coloured leaves. They were planted at the same time, get the same sun water etc. any ideas? (Photos of healthy and unhealthy plant attached)

Hello @RachelH 


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's sensational to have you join us, and thanks for sharing your question about your silver princess.


That is a bit of a mystery as both plants have been replanted at the same time and getting the same type of care. If there are no outward signs of insect or fungal infestation, we could possibly narrow it down to a water or soil issue. 


But just to be sure, would it be possible for you to take a closer photo of the leaves? This will give our members a chance to assess its condition. We can then make recommendations on how to proceed.


If you have any other questions we can help with, please let us know.
