I recently planted some confederate or star jasmine. So far, it's not doing so well. I'm in the Texas hill country, and I realize that August is probably not the best month for new plantings. (But hey, they were on sale!) I have been trying to water daily, yet they still seem to be drying out. Also, (this is the puzzling part) some of the leaves are turning silver. The center of the leaf begins to turn, and then it moves out covering the leaf. I've never seen anything like it. Any advice would be appreciated.

The silvery coating could be mildew.I got one from gurneys in the spring...and it didn;t make it,but neither did most of their order.
I can tell you some.
you can check the roots and make sure are white not grayish or browniush...thats not good.
you still got it in pot bought in?or did you plant it out? whats the soil like its in and how much sun& did you mulch the plant in to help hold in moisture...you gotta do that in TX unless you want to be a human water sprinkler.
how long you had plant?when'd ya pot out?

I recently transplated 2 salvia to my new bed from part sun to full sun.They have no recovered but grow at an angle where they lay down begging me to get them outta the sun,but hey...will look good next year and are blooming now...though bently.I watered them alot.talk to them too.they like that((& yeah weezie...I DO tell them watch out for that weedwacking dude))

Welcome to the site! Sorry can't help out with your new plant, but will agree with Njoynit...mulch helps a lot, in Texas. For example, I've had elephant ears for several years & never do much to them at all & they flourish. This year, I've been keeping the beds cleaned out & nice & pretty & have just realized that I'm actually the reason that they aren't doing as good this year. When my husband mows, he doesn't care where the cut grass goes & it "mulches" my beds. Since I've been cleaning them all the time, my plants aren't nearly as healthy.

That was pretty long to not say much, huh? [Big Grin]

naw...just shows were from TX......and all weezie did was>>> [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

I believe in mulch,but boy Do I sweat collecting it.I need to be out doing that now& not in here in AC...but it is already 90,,,and will be hotter than yesterday,which didn't get nothing done...garlic are still laying on ground.I put on swim suit to plant them out and got in pool& well lets just say 3 hours passed,no garlic moved& after dinner I moved shovel and sprayed some water on roots and picked up pot so dogs not chew it up.

And my I add...While I got off subject....Water in early mornings so your plants can grab that .drink.Every morning from 4:30-5 i water plants then finish up at 6:30 whenever return till finished takes an hour in morning& hour in evening...well thats 5ish time to drink time to dry.I'm getting some hoses next yr.i don't care if have to install my own holes...i got these areas...that sometimes need 5 gallon bucket totes by me..believe me i 'm fit.I'm on the garden program
Sami...my EE aren't mulched,but they are morning shaded,by banna& burgs& arbor.Tarro probably gets more sun.
