It's anemone coronaria de caen, I think

fuschia leaves turned brown

Thanks all the response and BUMP the message.


I think it was a bit root bound when I bought it, that was the reason I planted in the ground immediately.


I did not soak the rootball at that time, I do remember I gave it good water after planting. I did not loosen any root -  just moved it from the pot to ground. I put some chicken manure on the top of soil – I thought that could feed the plant. I give it a good water and feed – weekly tomato feed, and water daily (when the last few weeks so hot and dry).


The brown leaves are weak and flaccid, when I touch them to try to look underneath they just drop on the ground.

I planted a standard fuschia in my garden in May, it faces south-east. It had been growing/flowering so well. However, recently most of the leaves have turned brown. The leaves at the ends of the branches look okay (at the moment). What I should do? Is it a serious disease? Many Thanks!!!

Thanks all the suggestions, Frank. I know Peony Tree will take time to build up. As long as it doesn't die soon, I will be so happy.

Thanks Frank for the response.

The top one (1st) - it was planted just a few days, the bottom one (2nd) - I took the photo this morning. Sorry, I counld not edit my thread.

The peony tree planted at south facing of my garden, but it's on the south-east corner. It can get morning sunshine around 7am at this season.
