I have an Ilex glabra, planted about two years ago, whose leaves haves started turning yellow, them red, and dropping. The plant is on a slope where the soil (clay and loam) is generally moist but well drained. It looked fine until the last few weeks. The only change to its environment that I can think of is that it’s getting more sun, since one neighbor cut down a nearby pine tree and another cut down a nearby silver maple. Could the extra sun exposure be causing a problem? Or something else?
