I got two kalmias two years ago. One with small leaves and one with bigger leaves. The smaller leaved plant has been fine. The other I thought maybe was just having a rough start but here after two years it continues to be in decline with the leaves usually drooping and always a few in various stages of turning brown and falling off. It flowers in the spring, though lots of the flowers heads don't make it to maturity before browning, but some of them do make it. Maybe that's in part just because the yard is rather shady. That would be ok if it doesn't flower great but the leaves falling off just won't do. The soil here is clay but that was heavily amended with compost for both of them. I gave it some espoma hollytone fertilizer earlier in the spring. Maybe I just got unlucky with this one but I thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas about it before I think of replacing it with a new one. Thanks!
