My pieris "flaming silver" young red leaves and new shoots turned brown completely after transplanted into flower bed from pot last week. Green leaves look ok. Also Azalea flowers and buds become brown too at the same time. Azalea is next to my pieris and it has been there before I moved here last spring. I put little amount of plant food in soil for pieris and on surface of soil for azalea on same day then watered. Few days later both of them have got similar problem. The plant food is specific for Azalea. The weather had been rainy during Easter holiday. I took food plant out as much as possible from Azalea and transplanted pieris into pot again as I thought it must have been food plant given in wrong time. I think I should give it to them after flowering. But I am not sure if my guess is correct or not as I have no experience and very beginner. Another possibilities are there are roses had black spots on leaves around them so I took them away with my hand. But I don't know if black spot fungus cause this problem. I added photos of last week and this week. If anyone could give me any advice, it will be highly appreciated. Thank you!
