My white lilac bloomed beautifully this year. It is only about 3 years old. But now the leaves are turning brown. We had very heavy rains this year and water in places where we never had water before. The lilac was never 'standing' in water during these rains.
I am wondering if this is the problem?
I went out last evening and dug it up and moved it to a little higher ground. Where I live is flat flat flat!!! The soil was damp but not soggy as I expected. The roots looked good yet.
I am wondering if anyone thinks I can save this bush. I did have pine bark mulch around it, but not next to the trunk. When I replanted, I didn't put any mulch around it. We don't have acid soil where I live (the old zone 5 in MO) . The soil was once were I had garden, so was nice all around soil.
