Lorapetalum leaves turning tan colour
Morning, does anyone know what causes Lorapetalum leaves to turn a tan colour. These seem to be losing the rich maroon colour except on new leaves. Camellias are flourishing nearby so soil can't be too alkaline. Soil seems moist, not too wet or too dry. The plant gets sun all day so perhaps that's too much? The plant only went in in Spring 2018 so it's not old.
They do like some shade, so maybe yours is getting too much sun? and they really don't like drying out.
