    I have a stressed Lonicera (deciduous) not sure from what botanical family...but the leaves are dropping, yellowing, moldy....positioned in sandy soil with strong all afternoon to evening sun...sprayed with a fungicide once...perhaps I should be patient?

    Was potted for 1.5 years...dug up twice...perhaps this is the cause ? Currently 10 mos.
    in its' present location...May have dried out once during the heat spell...hmmmm...

    Genetic susceptibility plus dryness at the roots. Summer is mildew time on Pacific Slope because droughtiness combined with fogs or dews dampening leaves (but not washing them) is perfect for it.

    Try using Wettable sulpher fungicide.
