    I should think so. Nothing else ever looks quite so sick but still has a flower

    It looks anaemic in human terms or chlorotic in plant terms.  It needs to be watered only with rainwater if your tap water is at all hard.   It could do with a feed of specialist ericaceous feed which allows it to take up nutrients such as iron.   A foliar feed of Epsom salts - 15g to 5litres  of soft water - will restore a magnesium shortage.

    I suspect it would also benefit from going in the ground in a well prepared hole or else a bigger pot with some fresh, ericaceous compost underneath and round the sides.
