My black and my pink pussy willow bushes are now blooming gray.

I want to know if there is anything I can do to have them bloom in the black and the pink colors that they have done for years (12 years for the pink one and 5 years for the black one).

    It might have reverted to root stock......some bushes tree are grafted to a different set of roots supposedly to get them to grow better. Some times that root sends it’s own shoots out, and not what was grafted. Ie the bush went native.

    Oh! sounds like a Bee went from the black to the pink............? May be Try Propagation??

      What would I do? I mean, how do I do that? Maybe a bee cross-pollinated the bushes, so they both went back to gray? Interesting. And you answered from so far away. Thank you!

    Lime needed

      How much and when? I have pelletized lime. Is that acceptable?
      What would this do for the bushes? Thank you very much.

    Have a chat with a master gardener or the botony department at your local collage...I could be off base...

    Lime is vital to color mix in soil
