Just a month ago, it was fine:
Last week's field trip to the Eichler neighborhood forced a stop at a nearby nursery, so another Leucophyllum candidum 'Thunder Cloud' got the Adenanthos spot. I dug up the soil in a large area, bringing up some of the decomposed sandstone from below. Sharp drainage!
Good luck, kid.
The two out front are doing beautifully.
It looks like it has Chilli Thrips damage. Chilli Thrips is a nasty new pest that has appeared in Southern California. It's ruined most of my roses the past couple of months. Damaged plant tissue is puckered, browned, and shrunken.
And I thought the drought was bad. I'm meditating on what to do about this. I avoid all pesticides except in dire cases. Is this dire?
At least the Leucadendrons are not affected. Oh, such a red as this!
It takes my mind off the roses.
