Help with Virginia Sweetspire care

9 months ago

Hi all. I have two Itea virginia 'Fountains of Rouge' shrubs that I planted this year in a shady, slightly sloped area in my backyard. They've leafed out wonderfully but in the last week have begun to show signs of poor health. The newest youngest leaves are all turning yellowing, and the older established leaves are beginning to droop. It might not look serious yet but it happened very quickly, so I want to get ahead of it. I'm wondering if this might be an iron deficiency issue? Or an improper watering issue? I've attached photos that show how all the new young leaves have yellowed. Thanks for any help!
