Oak leaf hydrangea issues

Asked June 17, 2019, 2:53 PM EDT

I recently planted this oak leaf hydrangea but it is not looking so good. I also recently sent MSU a soil sample but have not heard back yet. I planted it with compost, peat and bone meal mixed in with mostly clay. Any suggestions?

This is most likely a nutrient issue. This could be due to a high pH or a deficiency or excess of certain nutrients. A common cause of this condition is High pH which can inhibit the uptake of iron. Once you get your soil test we can help you figure out what you can do to correct the problem.
I hope this is helpful,
