Leaves on Berberis darwinii seem to have a red/yellow discolouration

United Kingdom

Thanks Bamboo for reply but apparently the problem gets worse with moisture hence suggestion of fungal disease. Don't really want to treat chemically so any suggestions would be appreciated.

On plant Berberis darwinii



That looks more like autumning to me - if the plant dries out too much, it thinks its autumn, the leaves colour and fall, or the leaves lose their chlorophyll and drop off because of drought, so I'd say its a result of the heatwave and lack of water.
