Helen Rose of Sharon
"I just planted two Helen Rose of Sharon and the leaves are turning yellow. I planted it in full sun with garden mix soil. Help? I'm afraid I'm going to loose them."

There's no way I can tell what the problem is here, although Rose of Sharon is a member of the hibiscus family and these plants can develop yellow lower leaves if they've been recently planted or if the weather isn't really warm. I'm guessing this is a temperature issue due to cool spring temps. Just mulch the plants to help keep soil moisture consistent and wait for warmer weather."
