Passion Vine - leaves folding and turning yellow
I have a Lady Margaret passion vine that WAS beautiful! It was planted in the spring and was doing GREAT until about a month ago. The plant has 2 main vines at its base. About a month ago some of the leaves started yellowing and after investigation it was only from one of the main stems. Slowly all of the leaves turned brown so I trimmed back. Last week I removed all runners from the bad base. It seems as though the rest of the plant is yellowing and leaves folding. No change in routine.HELP

Hi,

Thanks for writing. It sounds as though your passionflower is infected with a disease --- but without being able to examine it in person, I really can't say what disease it is.

For more help, I'd take a sample of the affected leaves to the folks at your county's cooperative extension office --- the staff there should be able to help more if they can actually see what's going on.

Sorry I can't help more, but this free service really isn't suited to diagnosing plant problems like this because we need to actually see the plant.
