It's a conundrum why some plants fail to thrive under conditions that seem appropriate while others don't but then I think of chaos theory and the old saw about a butterfly flapping its wings hundreds of miles away...Could drying winds be an issue in some spots?


Getting the same amount of water? Feeling around their bases with your fingers?

Here trees are sucking much more moisture out of the soil than usual, and not looking too happy.


Actually all of them look better than mine. Perhaps some of your plants bloomed more than others? Flowering seems to cause the leaves to struggle a bit, and if things were wetter here I would fully cut mine back and wait for fresh growth. As it is I'm happy to see any leaves left on it.
