It's full of blooms, but the leaves are turning pale and yellowish. Doesn't appear to have any aphids. I fertilized it last week, thinking it needed a boost, but there is no change? I have the waves in a super big pot and we have had a lot of down pours, hail, you name it? What do you all recommend? Thanx.

I'd say off hand that it is getting too wet. At least it sounds like it is struggling with too much water.

Thanks, still raining a lot where you are? No change with the purple W, they are looking even worse, but still blooming. Still raining every day. Planter is too big to move. I could cover them everytime I hear more rain coming, but it's pointless, probably make them more yellow? In a few weeks, will pull them and throw that soil into the compost in hopes it will get some life back into it, or maybe should throw it out.

Daisy, I am in Eastern Canada...it has been raining every day and my flowers are in the same condition. I don't think they'll recover either. Next year I think I'm going to buy tougher plants.
