: Recently purchased 26, 7gal, 7ft tall, red tip phontias for use as a privacy hedge in the back yard. Currently 23 are bright red and growing madly! However 3, in a row, look very different... no red tips, not full and beautiful, dull colored, not wilting but lots of new buds on the branches. No apparent disease on the leaves. Should I replace them or what?
If it was me, I would replace them all with something that will last longer and not be a disease magnet. With that said, you might just have two different varieties. You should have a guarantee with your purchase. I would suggest you take them back where you purchased them from along with one of the ones you really want and do an exchange.
