Root Rot

Root rot is associated with heavy, soggy soil and crowded plants with poor air circulation. It causes wilting, yellowing, and leaf drop. Remove old leaves in late fall, divide plantings every few years to improve air movement, make divisions in the fall and replant in amended, well drained soil. Root rot is caused by poor drainage constantly creating moisture. Make sure potting soil is used for container plants and the containers allow for good drainage.
