Wordless Wednesday–Evidence of Drought on Shrubs

 Drought stressed hydrangea–notice all the dead leaves at the base!

Drought stressed rhododendron.  It should lose some leaves but not this many.

I pass this shrub on my walking route.  I think it’s a weigela.  It’s very badly stressed by our summer’s lack of rain.

 Finally, while not shrubs, these hosta (and the lawn as well) are showing the effects of a summer without water.
