The leaves of my Standing Ovation Serviceberry are turning yellow with spots. What is this and what can I do?

Are you overhead watering your Standing Ovation Serviceberry? If so, that's the reason for the spots.

Plants do best when they are watered at the base rather than with a sprinkler getting water on the leaves. Also, give it a good soaking rather than frequent waterings. Yellow leaves can also be a sign of too much water and poor drainage.

Thanks for writing!
